We share not because it's funny, but because it's not funny. As the title of the video implies, attempting to surf on a whale shark is an idiotic thing to do. The video's intro text explains:
"Whale sharks are classified as vulnerable. Any human interaction with them can affect their natural behavior, including the constant movement required for their oxygen supply. Whale sharks also have to maintain a protective layer on their skin, so standing on a whale shark is a pretty dumb move."
London-based wildlife group Marine Connection added: "As whale sharks are protected - the IUCN (World Conservation Union) Red List of Threatened Species lists the whale shark as vulnerable - these guys should be charged."
