Documentary explores whale shark species

Marine scientist, artist and conservationist Guy Harvey will present his latest documentary, “Whale Sharks in the Yucatan: A Guy Harvey Expedition,” at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Georgia Aquarium.

The premiere is scheduled to help commemorate the Aquarium¹s observance of international Whale Shark Day. Harvey will introduce the film and lead a Q&A session following its presentation as part of the Georgia Aquarium¹s Science on Tap lecture series.

The film highlights Harvey¹s scientific encounters with whale sharks off Isla Mujeres during their spectacular, annual feeding aggregation.
George Schellenger, a two-time Emmy winning producer, will also co-host the lecture alongside Harvey and Dr. Al Dove, director of research and conservation at Georgia Aquarium.
