Are you ready to play a vital role in conserving manta rays?
If your answer is yes, read on to learn how to take part.
1. Help our scientists identify and track manta ray populations.
Perhaps you’re a diver or snorkeler with a passion for underwater photography. Maybe you have a large collection of underwater photos. If so, then we need your help.
By uploading your manta photos to our database, you can help our scientists to identify and monitor manta populations. Find out more here.
2. Sign the petition to save manta rays.
Manta rays are listed under several international conservation agreements, including the Convention on Migratory Species and xxx. Despite this, very few countries have established national management strategies or legislation. No catch quotes, no closed seasons, and no minimum sizes.
Sign our petition, and encourage the Indonesian government to take leading stance by managing this majestic species across the world’s largest archipelagic nation. Find out more here.
