About The Manta Network

The Manta Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit conservation organization therefore the cost of this trip is IRS tax-deductible. Our mission is to provide an easy to use database for both Manta ray researchers as well as anyone else with a desire to learn something more.

We hope to fulfill these four objectives:

  • Population Studies to further our knowledge of habitats and migration patterns
  • Environmental Education to develop a comprehensive online reference and conduct educational seminars
  • Environmental Assessment Studies to conduct field research in strategically important areas
  • Public Awareness Initiatives to prototype action plans and assist local awareness programs
