Kip Evans’ Isla Holbox whale shark documentary

Kip Evan’s documentary, Isla Holbox – Whale Shark Island, was recently debuted at the 2010 San Francisco Ocean Film Festival. The film focuses on whale sharks and the effects they’ve had on Isla Holbox as a result of the ecotourism industry created by their presence around the island during the months of June through September. Evans hopes to send a message that whale sharks need to be protected throughout their migration regions, as opposed to just in small marine reserve areas such as Isla Holbox, according to the Ocean Film Fest blog.

    Thank you for airing this-my husband and I went to Isla Holbox for our honeymoon last year and had the opportunity to swim with the whale sharks. We were amazed and felt as though it was such a chance of a lifetime. We have already made plans to go back this summer!
