Goals

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.
