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
