Unfortunately, THIS VIDEO IS VERY DISTURBING… This week a juvenile Whale Shark was fatally injured by a boat propellor in Nusa Penida, Bali. This is incredibly sad news, however it highlights a very important issue. Unregulated marine tourism in Nusa Penida is having serious impacts on the marine environment. High speed watersports from mass tourism operators such as pontoons as well as boat traffic are not only dangerous in the area but are also damaging marine life.
This video was taken by tourists Marketa Olmerova & Oldrich Olmer at Buyuk, Nusa Penida on 25 July 2016.
