Gentle Giants of the Al Shaheen - Whale Sharks
Catherine Reeves
Senior Environmental Advisor
North Oil Company

Online talk on ZOOM


Synopsis of the talk
During this talk, Katie will discuss the whale sharks of the Al Shaheen field: why they
aggregate in the Qatari waters every year, why they are here in the first place and she will
update us on Whale Shark science across the world. She will discuss the limited activities
from this year in Qatar due to COVID-19 restricting fieldwork, as well as what is planned for
the next few years.
