Our Vision: A sustainable future for the oceans where manta rays thrive in healthy, diverse marine ecosystems.
The Manta Trust is a UK registered charity, that aims to co-ordinate global efforts to research and conserve manta rays, mobula rays, and their habitats. We act as an umbrella organisation for manta researchers from over a dozen new and established projects from around the world. In addition, we bring individuals from a variety of other backgrounds; photojournalists, filmmakers, media specialists and celebrities. Doing so unites their voices and provides them with the means to work collectively towards a common cause - the conservation of mobulid rays and our oceans.
Our charity takes a multidisciplinary approach to the worldwide conservation of mantas, mobula rays and their habitats. We use robust science and research to make informed conservation management decisions, whilst also raising awareness and providing education to the general public, to governments, and to community stakeholders.
