Stars of the Deep: Taking Care of Whales


Stars of the Deep

Rolex recently published this fascinating new video on protecting whales and said:

 "Marine scientist Brad Norman received a Rolex Award for Enterprise in 2006 to fine-tune his pioneering photo-identification system for whale sharks, the world’s biggest fish. The database contains 75,000 sightings of 12,000 sharks, photographed by 9,000 citizen scientists and researchers all over the world. It is one of the largest datasets of a marine species and emblematic of Rolex’s Perpetual Planet initiative to support those finding ways to protect the natural world."
