The Whale Shark, Seychelles
The Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus), Seychelles.

The Indian Ocean has long been one of the primary sources of Whale Shark sightings. Whale sharks visit the Seychelles during the migrating season (when the plankton blooms), mainly in September and October. Port Launay Marine National Park and Ste Anne Marine National park are two of the spots where whale sharks feeding on the rich plankton may be watched in Seychelles in the season.

Seychelles has declared the shark a protected species in Seychelles territorial waters. Since 1996, the Marine Conservation Society of Seychelles has been monitoring and tagging Whale Sharks in Seychelles waters.
