    About This Project

    The Maldivian Manta Ray Project wants to know if manta rays use reef habitats differently when divers/snorkelers are present, as well as deepen our understanding of how temporal scales affect manta activity. Underwater time-lapse cameras will provide new insight into manta behaviour and habitat use, so that we can provide vital scientific guidance to Maldivian communities, businesses and the government; ultimately helping them to protect the local manta population on which their economy depends.
