When the manta rays don't come to us, we go to them
After many frustrating months of field research in Mozambique, Team Manta were treated to an extraordinary week up in the Greater Bazaruto Area in late June/early July. After a tipoff from MMF’s pilot, Janneman Conradie, who spotted reef mantas during several consecutive days of his regular patrolling for the EWT, we quickly packed our gear and headed up to Vilanculos. Our mission? To track down reef mantas and deploy the first satellite tags on this species in African history!
