Komodo National Park, where we mainly operate is famed not only for its fierce currents but for its intact ecosystem. Intact ecosystems include all living things, from the small pygmy seahorse, to the large and majestic manta rays. Without the mantas Komodo's richness will be lost, which is just one reason why manta ray conservation is important to us at Current Junkies.
