Meet Ah, Taiwan’s Famous Whale Shark!

In honor of the awesomeness that is Shark Week, I thought a touching article on Taiwan’s kick butt celebrity shark Ah, aptly named by the sound people make when they see him, was in order.

Ah is an example of the Taiwan’s growing eco-conscious, and is taking strict measures to help protect Whale Sharks. Talk about Ah-Ha moment!
