The Big Manta Ray 

@Regranned from @conversation_ocean - We all get by with a little help from our fins... happy #mantamonday ! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ“ท @samlawrencephoto

@Regranned from @goingepicplaces - Speak with anyone about diving in Indonesia and youโ€™ll see their eyes light up as they reminisce about interacting with the majestic Manta Ray of the Komodo Islands. The Komodo National Park offers sanctuary to more of these beautiful creatures than most other places in the world ๐ŸŒŽ. Manta Point Komodo is a divesite rich with bottom based plankton making it an alluring spot โ€“ attracting dozens of Manta Ray for feeding and cleaning. Geographically the site is directly on the channel connecting the Indian and the South West Pacific oceans, each hosting distinct underwater climates that come together to create an ideal environment for the Manta Ray. In Indonesia you can hope to find both reef and oceanic Manta Ray, but Manta Point Komodo is usually home to the more dominant species, the Reef Manta. Theyโ€™re a long living species, with a life expectancy of up to fifty years, but theyโ€™re slow to breed, giving birth to as few as ten Manta Ray pups in their lives.

This is why theyโ€™ve been included on the red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The organisation classifies the Mantaโ€™s conservation status as vulnerable. While safe in Indonesia, in other parts of Asia they are hunted for their plankton filtering gills, which are used to produce medicinal concoctions. ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿณ๐ŸŸโ›ต๏ธ๐Ÿ  #GoingEpicPlaces #MantaRay #Komodo #Explore #Indonesia #RajaLaut

@Regranned from @biminisharkgirl - #MobulaMonday ! Manta birostris is now known as Mobula birostris. These animals have been targeted for their gill rakers, which are used in traditional Asian medicine. Seeing these creatures in the ocean is truly incredible, especially in Bimini, where they are fairly rare to see. Thanks ocean for another amazing day! Let's take care of these creatures and the ocean!

1. #stopsucking -say no to plastic straws. Bring your own reusable ( I like @simplystraws ) join the campaign from @lonelywhale and @paditv
2. Find more sustainable options if you eat seafood. Every little bit makes a difference. Shrimp have a huge amount of bycatch (non target species), so I have not eaten shrimp in over 10 years.

3. Support #sharkscience and #sharkeducation: find a local org. to volunteer for or message me about how you support @sharkeducation and help us create the next generation of shark advocates.
4. Learn to freediver or Scuba dive and experience the wonder of the ocean first hand... I guarantee it will change your life. Check out @paditv for more details!! Simple and easy... we CAN make a difference. ๐Ÿ“ท @biminisharkgirl

@Regranned from @oceana - A manta ray swims among a small school of fish. Previously, manta rays had been in a separate category from devil rays because of the position of their mouths. Manta rays' mouths face forward on the front of their face, while the devil rays have mouths on the bottom facing downwards. But after collecting DNA samples from manta and devil rays across the globe, researchers found that mantas actually belong in the genus Mobula with the devil rays and no longer warrant their own genus. ๐Ÿ“ท: magnusdeepbelow

@Regranned from @fathomlesslife - Manta ray ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค™๐Ÿฝ one of my favourite marine animals! Photo by me @fathomlesslife !
I've been diving with them a couple of times but never managed to get a good shot of one, safe to say i am pretty stoked with how this turned out ๐Ÿค—
Diving in the Komodo islands of Indonesia was some of the best diving I have ever done! A must for the bucket list my fellow ocean lovers! Thanks again @indtravel ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

@Regrann from @krystlejwright - It's hard to not have the soundtrack of The Life Aquatic of Steve Zissou playing in my head every time I caption images from the Azores. What better than Portuguese versions of David Bowie songs. I also learned that Manta rays get their name from the spanish word "mantle" which can be translated into "blanket." Maybe that's all @drchrisbrown was searching for, an ocean cuddle. ๐Ÿ‘†๐ŸผLink in Bio ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ@CanonAustralia
