The Manta Trust
The Trust’s aim is to build a solid foundation of research and awareness from which governments, NGOs and conservationists can make informed and effective decisions to ensure the long-term survival of manta rays, their close relations and their habitats. With manta ray populations declining at an alarming and every-increasing rate, the Trust works tirelessly to achieve its vision: a world where manta rays thrive within a globally healthy marine system.
The Manta Trust holds the largest recorded database of manta rays anywhere in the world.
Manta Trust researchers and volunteers are based at Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru, and resort guests are invited to accompany the research team on-board the manta research vessel, which departs from the Resort most days during manta season.
