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

Gabriela Beutler
 
Why are research and conservation for this species important?
"These majestic creatures need all our help we can give them. Having the privilege to dive and snorkel with them is an experience you will never ever forget. I was so lucky to have an encounter with this very Manta when he was approx. 1 month old. And now I could adopt him - what else could a manta lover wish for? Marine conservation is so important for humanity - lets participate!"
