Tourist flock to a remote village in the Philippines to see and even swim with whale sharks, the world’s largest fish. But many conservationists are concerned about the practice.
Snorkelers watch a whale shark approach a feeder boat off the beach of Tan-awan, on the southern Philippines island of Cebu. Tan-awan used to be a sleepy village that never saw tourists unless they were lost or in transit. Now, tourists flock there by the hundreds to swim with whale sharks, the world's largest fish.
