CANCUN ECO WHALE SHARK TOURS

CANCUN WHALE SHARK TOURS WAS HONORED TO HOST A VERY IMPORTANT GROUP OF ECO FRIENDLY CLIENTS THIS PAST SUMMER. MARCELO D’AMICO LEADS A GROUP OF FOLKS FROM THE USA ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS AROUND THE WORLD.

THEIR ORGANIZATION 40IN40, WWW.40IN40.ORG, IS A NON PROFIT THATS DEDICATED TO CONSERVATION OF BOTH LAND & WATER SPECIES. THEY CONTACTED US WANTING TO DO THE VIP PRIVATE WHALE SHARK EXPERIENCE.

THEY WERE GROUPED ON 2 YACHTS THAT TRAVELED TOGETHER. WE WERE FORTUNATE TO SECURE THE HELP OF CANCUN’S & THE WHALE SHARKS FAVORITE MARINE BIOLOGISTS MR. RAFAEL PARRA WHO ACCOMPANIED THEM AND OFFERED A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE AND WHALE SHARK HISTORY ETC. MARCELO & HIS GROUP WERE SO IMPRESSED WITH THE SERVICES WE OFFERED AND HOW WE DEMONSTRATED OUR OWN SENSE OF CONSERVATION IN CONDUCTING THE TOUR THAT THEY GENEROUSLY DONATE $8000 TO PURCHASE 4 SPECIAL GPS TRACKING TAGS WHICH WILL ALLOW US TO TRACK THE WHALE SHARKS MOVEMENTS FOR UP TO 3 YEARS! WE INTEND ON SHARING THIS INFORMATION AS THE PROJECT EXPANDS. AGAIN, WE THANK MARCELO & 40IN40.ORG FOR THEIR GENEROUS DONATION TO AID IN OUR ONGOING WHALE SHARK RESEARCH AND CONSERVATION EFFORTS.
