Help Protect Mantas

Tell NMFS: Protect Mantas Now!

One of the ocean's most remarkable creatures is disappearing at an alarming rate and needs your help.

The majestic manta ray is in trouble. Weighing as much as a Toyota Prius with a wingspan twice the size of the largest bird, mantas are being overfished, in some places to the brink of extinction.

Take action: Tell the National Marine Fisheries Services (NMFS) to recommend that mantas be protected under the Endangered Species Act.
