We recently changed our copyright policy! Content on our website is now licensed under the Creative Commons, making it available for educators, scientists and other manta supporters to use in their own manta ray conservation projects.
We believe that everyone has a role to play in looking after our planet. To paraphrase Einstein, effective conservation means standing together on the shoulders of others.
To educate others and raise awareness about marine conservation, educators require universal access to resources, information and materials.
To gain new insights and develop new strategies, scientists need to refer to the best available data and research.
That’s why we’re proud to announce that we’ve changed our copyright policy.
All content on our website is now licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial licence.
This means that you can use any of our content for your own conservation, awareness, or manta ray projects.
All we ask is that you acknowledge our work by crediting MantaWatch Ltd, and that you don’t use our content for commercial purposes.
If you would like to use our content for anything outside the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial licence, please contact us. We’re always happy to listen to ideas.
On a related issue, we’re also looking at ways to make your manta ray sightings and photographs more accessible to other scientists and research teams through the Conservation Commons. Watch this space!
