MANTA RAY SECRETS
UNCOVERING MANTA RAY SECRETS
Manta ray nurseries are among the least-studied marine settings on the planet, never before having been documented in the wild. Scientists Dr. Mark Erdman and Dr. Sarah Lewis have both devoted their careers to studying mantas—and especially to preserving their threatened habitat in Indonesia.
Follow Dr. Erdman, Dr. Lewis, and the ALUCIA team to Raja Ampat, where they discover and explore what has now become a legendary global hotspot for locating, tagging, and tracking mantas.
