International Whale Shark Day

Today we honor these majestic giants of the great blue. May we educate the world in order to instill their future on our planet.

 A year ago an endangered, 18-foot whale shark washed up dead on a beach in India. Inside it's belly was heaps of plastic, including an entire plastic spoon. These creatures deserve better than an ocean full of our single-use plastic trash. Full article  here .

Inspired by the magic of what still exists in our world & in celebration of our ability to create change, I lead mermaid retreats to pair ocean discovery through adventure with conservation efforts unique to a particular area. It is a dream come true to swim with these beautiful, gentle giants of the sea.

Whale sharks are not cetacea, but the world’s largest fish. They breathe through gills & filter feed through their giant wide mouths that can reach to 5 feet wide! Every spring whale sharks migrate along the west coast of Australia. The past 2 years I have had the honor of holding my own mermaid retreats in Exmouth. I am currently holding my mermaid retreat in Hervey Bay with the humpbacks.

At my mermaid retreats we stay in a big house, practice yoga & meditation, eat healthy Ayurvedic food, practice Plastic Free living with workshops & recipe making, and swim with Whale sharks & humpbacks. Learn more about these amazing experiences here.
