Manta Ray of Hope - Publication!


This is as good as it gets!
I've been a big fan of Manta Ray of Hope since its inception and this brilliant document only reinforces my initial enthusiasm. It addresses exhaustively all my questions and shows a clear way forward, i.e. science-based legislative measures, tourism and most importantly, enforcement - and yes, education, too!
Required reading for anybody wanting to talk about the subject!

Big Kudos!
This is how you do it, including having succeeded in uniting the world's most prominent mobulid researchers and conservation advocates behind this brilliant initiative - and wouldn't this also be the perfect template for Shark conservation!
Yes I know, and pigs will fly! :)

For once, I really got nothing to add.
Synopsis here.

CNMI banned the fishing of all ray species in January 2008.

But then again, people in CNMI get away with murder and corruption all the time, never mind illegal fishing.
