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.

Why are research and conservation for this species important?
"A diving encounter with Mantas never ceases to be an exceptional experience. We are inspired by the ongoing research & work of Marine Megafauna to conserve these special creatures & the marine environment. Our sponsorship not only supports their ongoing research, it also provides a lasting memory of our daughter Lana & her partner Matt getting engaged at Manta Alley."

"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."
