Sign the petition to save manta rays
Manta rays are a charismatic species listed under several international conservation agreements, including the Convention on Migratory Species and Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Despite this, manta rays are unmanaged in many countries throughout their range, and face increasing pressure from fishing, pollution and coastal development.
Sign our petition, and encourage the Government of Indonesia to adopt a leading stance on marine conservation by managing this majestic species across the world’s largest archipelagic nation. Find out more here.
