The Manta Trust is extremely grateful to our sponsors, whose continued support enables us to carry out our field research with the best equipment for the job, helping to ensure our scientific team and our equipment is kept safe.
Almost all of our fieldwork is conducted from boats, often on wet dive-decks in rough seas. While we’re working we rely on Pelican Cases to keep all of our high-tech equipment safe and dry, both at our research sites and on the way there.
Manta rays live all over the world, from the chilly seas of Mexico’s Pacific coast to the crystal clear tropical waters of the Maldives. No matter where we go to study mantas, we always rely on Fourth Element thermal protection to keep us warm during long dives and long days.

Carl F. Bucherer is an independent Swiss watchmaker with over 90 years of expertise in the production of precious contemporary watches in the premium market segment. As part of our effort to learn more about the lives of mantas, Carl F. Bucherer have generously sponsored two satellite tags to track the movement patterns of Oceanic Manta Rays in the tropical eastern Pacific ocean – an endeavour that would not be possible without their support.
Prawno makes thoughtfully designed clothing for scuba divers, freedivers and other water enthusiasts.
