    About This Project

    The Manta Bowl is a seamount located within the second largest protected seascape in the Philippines. Due to the area's characteristics, the area is a critical habitat for manta rays, whale sharks and other marine life. The project aims to explore the deeper areas (100-400m) around the seamount, describe its biodiversity and identify priority areas for conservation while enhancing deep sea exploration technologies and accessibility locally.
