The Manta Ray of Hope team is developing global conservation campaigns, based on sound science, to :
- Secure legal protection in both consuming and range states through trade bans and sanctuaries.
- Establish international protection through the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species and Regional Fishery Management Organizations.
- Reduce demand for manta products through consumer education and awareness campaigns.
- Develop ecotourism in fishing communities to provide a sustainable alternative to manta ray hunting.
