What is Fauna & Flora doing to save manta rays?
Fauna & Flora is helping to safeguard marine sites where manta rays can be found, protecting these special species and other marine creatures from the devastating impacts of destructive fishing.
But we need to step up our efforts.
Through your donations, Fauna & Flora could get the crucial funding into the field to closely monitor the gill trade and develop a comprehensive plan to combat it.
Your support could also provide us with the essential resources allowing us to safeguard crucial marine protected areas to help put an end to destructive fishing practices in key manta ray habitats.
What do Fauna & Flora need?
We urgently need the funding to help pay for staffing, boats and patrols that will allow us to carry out crucial marine operations, looking into the gill trade and developing key plans to combat it.
In addition, we need the resources to help manage and monitor marine protected areas in important manta ray habitats, keeping these vulnerable creatures safe from the devastating impacts of destructive overfishing.
Once we have these resources in place, we can take our work to protect manta rays to the next level and see these remarkable fish rebound and repopulate the ocean.
