PROJECT MANTA: The Manta Rays of Eastern Australia

Project MANTA is a multidisciplinary study of manta rays, established in 2007, that aims to provide much needed biological and ecological information about the species in eastern Australia.

This research heavily relies on community support to provide manta ray sighting information and photographs. 

 Photos are utilised for photo-identification of manta rays and are integrated in a photograph database which includes all pictures of manta rays recorded on the eastern Australian coast.
