We have been inspired by the passion and love for manta rays of Andrea, Steph and Ellie from the Marine Megafauna Foundation. We strive to support Marine Megafauna Foundation in every way possible but especially with manta ray IDs. Who wouldn’t want to help with the conservation of these majestic manta rays?
