If you zoom in too quickly, Google Maps may claim that it does not have the needed maps. Zoom back out, wait a few seconds to allow maps to load in the background, and then zoom in again.
If more than one point is mapped for the marked individual, the map also displays chevrons to guide you from the first sighting (shown as a green icon) to each subsequent sighting over time. The chevrons do NOT represent a path of travel, just a sequential link across time.
Meet the Adopters
|Why are research and conservation for this species important?|
|"I love Mantas! When you meet them underwater, they are curious and check you out and react to your presence. I'm always fascinated by the interaction with them and it always proves me that they are intelligent animals, which need our protection. Princesa Negra was the model for my Design of the Fish Are Friends T-Shirt Collection. That's why I always want to know, where she goes and how she is. With my T-Shirts I want to help protecting these wonderful animals."|

"Ellie loves Manta Matcher as it helps her keep an eye on Indonesia's manta rays while she is busy working on her PhD. When she is not seeing spots Ellie is usually found avoiding single use plastic, doing yoga or eating chocolate."
