A CALL TO ACTION
URGENT: Manta rays and their look-alike cousins are in peril due to the alarming increase in trade of their gill rakers, skin, and other body parts. We need to determine the extent of this trade, and find out where these rays are common and where they are declining.
YOU CAN HELP! Report your observations, even if you've never seen a manta or mobulid, and contribute towards the conservation of these highly vulnerable species, in just 5 minutes.
HOW? If you have more than 200 dives in one ocean area your observations can make all the difference!
NOTE THE DEADLINE! Surveys must be submitted before August 31, 2012.
SPREAD THE WORD! Send the survey link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3FJ5J9B) to other divers, dive companies and organizations around the world.
IMPORTANT!! The survey will be available starting this Friday, June 15th.
