Fishermen Release a Whale Shark from a Fishing Net

Shah Zamin, a fisherman in Pakistan, carefully releases a young whale shark caught in a tuna net. Whale sharks are often victims of bycatch, the accidental capture of non-target species in fishing gear. WWF is training fishermen like Zamin how to free whale sharks, as well as dolphins and sea turtles, to protect these important marine species.
