Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // The calm and temperate waters of Holbox (Quintana Roo) are important feeding grounds for hundreds of whale sharks. Not surprisingly, the area also attracts hordes of tourists keen to swim alongside these gentle giants. In recent years, advisories and regulations have come in place to protect the sharks, but like many eco-tourism regions, the Isla Mujeres finds itself seeking solutions to the complex equation that is wildlife conservation and tourism. #FollowMe on @CristinaMittermeier as our @Sea_Legacy team investigates what it means to be a responsible tourism operator and guest. #Ocean #Conservation #Tourism #WhaleShark
