partners & sponsors

The Manta Trust works closely with a number of groups to facilitate and finance its conservation, research and educational aims. We are extremely grateful to our partners and sponsors for their support, without whom many of the chartiy's achievements to date would not have been possible.

The Save Our Seas Foundation has supported the Manta Trust from the outset, not only providing funding and guidance for its projects, but also facilitating international cooperation among manta researchers to forge a global conservation plan of action.


As part of our effort to learn more about the lives of mantas, Carl F. Bucherer have partnered with the Manta Trust to support their research and conservation efforts around these majestic animals. Since the beginning of our relationship, Carl F. Bucherer have generously sponsored two satellite tags to track the movement patterns of Oceanic Manta Rays in the tropical eastern Pacific ocean, financed an upcoming code of conduct film for use in the global manta tourism industry, and released a limited edition line of Manta Trust dive watches in support of research into manta feeding ecology in the Maldives (an initiative known as Watch My Manta).


The mission of the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation is to advance society through the performing arts, conservation of the world’s oceans, and alleviation of poverty. The Foundation is supporting the Manta Trust’s core team and charitable aims; enabling us to work towards our vision of a world where stable and recovering mobulid populations thrive in healthy and diverse marine ecosystems.
