Exploring the World of Manta & Devil Rays with the Manta Trust- Secondary

8 June, 2023 @ 8:40 am - 9:10 am EDT

Celebrate World Ocean Day and join Jen, Education Manager at The Manta Trust for an exciting and informative live talk about manta and devil rays (collectively known as mobulids). Manta and devil rays are beautiful, gentle, and charismatic creatures that are greatly threatened by overfishing, irresponsible tourism, and the impacts of the climate crisis.

This talk will allow you to find out more about these animals and to hear about the work that is being carried out by scientists to try and protect these gentle giants.

The Manta Trust was formed to conserve manta and devil rays through a combination of research, education, and collaboration. Using the charismatic manta rays as flagship species, the charity enthuses and motivates the public, authorities, and businesses with the will to preserve all ocean life.

This live talk, aimed at secondary students, will be informative and engaging. There will be the opportunity to ask questions afterwards.

This virtual secondary school assembly talk will take place using MS Teams Live. The platform has safeguarding built-in to make it a safe online environment, especially for young people, including no webcams or microphones and a live Q&A function which is fully moderated.
