“Salon de la Plongée”
Manta love is expanding…and for the second year we flew to Paris to attend the 18th Salon de la Plongée that took place from the 8th to the 11th January 2016. Armed with the cutest manta cuddly toys, a manta costume and plenty of passion and good spirit we dove into four days of action with the aim to raise awareness, educate and inform the French public about manta and mobula research, their biology and the threats facing them.
Manta Trust at the Katti Hivvaru Festival
Following its inception in 2012, the annual Katti Hivvaru Artists Festival, held in Male, was once again a great success this year – and Manta Trust were there to join the fun and festivities! Apparently, Katti Hivvaru can be very literally translated to mean impetus, or sudden burst of energy, and that is exactly the kind of attitude we were hoping to promote to festival goers regarding manta ray conservation in the Maldives.
