In Lamakera, Indonesia, manta ray harvests have increased from 200 to almost 3,000 individuals per year. This is just one small coastal village amongst many in Indonesia.
But despite this growth in manta fisheries, Indonesia, like many neighboring countries, has no management legislation in place. No closed seasons, no catch quotes, and no minimum sizes.
Pledge your support, and help Save Manta Rays in Indonesia.
Sign the petition today, and encourage Indonesia’s Minster for the Environment to lead manta conservation in the Coral Triangle.
