Manta Rays receive first international protection from the Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals

Shark Savers applauds the Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) on its agreement to list the giant manta ray (Manta birostris) on both its Appendix I and Appendix II, obligating its member countries to protect mantas and their habitats. The CMS is an international treaty organization and the only global convention specializing in the conservation of migratory species, their habitats and migration routes. Shark Savers also thanks the Ministry of the Environment of Ecuador for initiating and submitting the proposals to protect Manta birostris by listing them on both Appendices I and II of the CMS. The Manta Ray of Hope team assisted Ecuador’s CMS delegates in shaping the proposal and made available to all CMS delegates a condensed version of its forthcoming Manta Ray of Hope report, "Global State of Manta and Mobula Rays" and access to the Manta Ray of Hope short film prior to this week's CMS meeting in Bergen, Norway.

The ‘million dollar manta’ being killed worldwide for unproven health tonics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and NEW YORK, NY (January 14, 2012) - Manta rays are so popular with divers and snorkelers that a single animal can 'earn' more than US$ 1 million over its lifetime for local eco-tourism, according to a new report issued by the Manta Ray of Hope Project. Despite their popularity and lucrative tourism value, the report provides shocking evidence that these graceful and gentle giants are rapidly disappearing due to extreme fishing pressure that is largely unknown by the general public or conservationists.
