Brad Norman, Director of ECOCEAN (Australia) and ECOCEAN (USA) will lead this book launch.
A coffee-table style full-colour book with exquisite photos and first-hand stories about the Ningalo Reef and its marine life. Over a ten-year period, the author has led hundreds of people into the waters of Ningaloo to swim with the majestic whale shark - the biggest fish in the ocean. The text of the book and the author's photographs are supplemented by the author's videos of whale sharks and other marine life - all accessible directly from the book via QR codes. There has not been a publication of this sort on the Ningaloo Reef since the 1990's and certainly not since it becoming a World Heritage listed site in 2011. This is a unique, interactive book for nature lovers.
This book is factual and well sourced and contains amazing photography as well as many interesting anecdotes of the author’s personal experiences over his decade on Ningaloo Reef.
ECOCEAN is a non-government, not-for-profit organization involved in scientific research, education and conservation of the marine environment. ECOCEAN maintains a global whale shark data base that uses citizen scientists (members of the global public) to provide observational and photographic data to identify, record and track the migratory movements of this threatened species.
