You can look but you can't touch!
Yes, that's right. In order not to spoil your encounter and not cause any stress to these gentle giants which have been reported to be seen along the waters of Dulag, Leyte, BFAR 8 urges the public not to touch them.
These whale sharks which have been allegedly seen in the waters of Barangays Sungi and San Miguel, Dulag, Leyte on June 24 and 25, 2019 have an estimate length of 15-30 ft.
Citizens from the said barangays have seen these whale sharks swimming and eating small fishes 10-15 meters from the coastline. According to them, they usually witness sightings of the biggest fish in the sea every May and June.
BFAR 8 Regional Director Dr. Juan D. Albaladejo considers the annual migration of whale sharks from Donsol to Leyte Gulf and Southern Leyte as one of the possible reasons for the sighting of these cartilaginous fish.
Further, the Bureau encourages the public not to abuse nor harm these big and friendly fish in order not to cause them any behavioral changes and avoid inevitable incidents.
