Mapping

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.

Uber Scuba Komodo
 
Why are research and conservation for this species important?
"We consider it a blessing to be able to enter the waters of Komodo knowing that we may encounter such majestic, breathtaking creatures. Marine megafauna, like manta rays, are representative of the health of our oceans. If we were to lose our marine megafauna it is an indicator of the larger devastation of our planet. We know that we must protect our marine megafauna and their environments to ensure we can enjoy a healthy marine environment for years to come, this is where the wonderful work of Manta Matcher, MMF and Elitza Germanov and her incredible team come in. Sharing the seas with Manta Rays - like this beautiful specimen - ensure our passion for diving forever remains, and we urge anyone who is yet to come into contact with the team at Manta Matcher to get involved. You can meet our manta 'Uber' by Diving in Komodo - visit us at http://uberscubakomodo.com"

"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."
