In cooperation with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and with the support of the European Union, the Government of Japan and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States of America, FAO has developed a database to document international, regional and national shark measures.
I've been working on developing a database of the manta rays around Nusa Penida - it's free and open access to all on Facebook - Manta Ray Database - Nusa Penida. If anyone has any pictures of the manta rays together with the dates of their sighting please upload your pictures to the Facebook page! I already have lots of repeat sightings and the next step is to find out if our manta rays are traveling and where to!! Watch this space and my weekly dive blog to find out more about the manta rays, the reefs around Lembongan and my latest news!
