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.

 

Meet the Adopters

Clare
 
Why are research and conservation for this species important?
"I love to swim in the ocean! I love all of the sea creatures that live in the ocean. I find it really cool to have a friend from the ocean that is a manta ray! Something I want to do when i grow up is to go diving and get to see Leo with my own eyes! I love animals and I really wish to see Leo. One thing I hate is pollution. Everyone just thinks that it is okay to throw trash in the ocean. But not me. My mom, my and I cleaned up a beach full of trash on our last vacation. I am so happy to get to adopt a manta ray named Leo. I am going to check in on where Leo is going and what he is doing every time I can. I am so proud to be able to get to adopt a manta. Getting to be able to adopt Leo is one of the happiest things I have ever gotten to do. Thank you for letting me do this. I love swimming in the ocean and all of the sea creatures that live in it."

"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."
