Whale Shark - Conservation Creature Plush
Whale Sharks (Rhincodon typus) are the largest fish in the world, weighing an average of 20 tons and growing to be more than 30 feet long. They can live to be more than 70 years old. Whale Sharks are migratory and travel across the world’s oceans to feed. They are found in REEF’s TWA, TEP, HAW, SOP, and CIP regions.
REEF Conservation Creatures are iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life. We hope they inspire you to join REEF and learn more about the marine environment!
Each plush comes with a Conservation Card that provides information about the critter's habitat, characteristics, potential threats, and global distribution in REEF's Survey Project regions.
Choose a plush marine animal from your favorite REEF Volunteer Fish Survey Project region, or collect all of the creatures for a diverse and cuddly array of ocean life!
