Marine Biologist Warns of Getting Too Close to Marine Life

A tourist rides a whale shark. A boat captain hugs a dugong. A snorkeler gets more than a kiss when bumping lips with a nurse shark.

Needless to say, these types of marine encounters (all are real stories) are foolish and dangerous—but just in case you wanted to hear it from a professional, a marine biologist at James Cook University has officially condemned harassing marine wildlife.

“Look, but do not touch,” explains Andrew Frisch of James Cook—wise words in a world where these type of encounters dominate the news.

Or in diver talk: Take pictures, leave bubbles. And don’t kiss a nurse shark.
