MANTA STORIES


 

BABAGANOUSH

One of the Manta Trust's favourite mantas, Babaganoush was struck by a speed boat in 2018. The team had no idea if he would survive such a horrific injury. In 2019 the team were thrilled to see him still alive and well and his injury was healing well.

 

 

MRS FLAPPY

In 2017 Mrs Flappy was encountered by ProDivers, completely entangled in fishing line. Eventually this plastic line would have cut into her flesh and could have caused Mrs Flappy enormous harm. This short video shows the moment she was rescued by heroic divers!
