JOIN US BEHIND THE SCENES.

By joining The Cyclone, you’ll gain a front-row seat to our global conservation efforts. We want to introduce you to our manta family, and show you the research we’re doing and why we’re doing it. We will share with you our discoveries and successes as they happen, as well as the challenges we face along the way.

To do this, we’ve created an exclusive area of our website available only to Cyclone members - where you’ll gain access to videos, stories, and regular updates from the field.

Around the world, mantas are under threat.

Targeted and bycatch fishing are depleting populations, unsustainable tourism can disturb and change natural behaviour, and climate change threatens the health and productivity of the habitats they rely on.

In recent years, we’ve made some significant steps forward to better conserve these animals, but there is still a lot of work to be done.

THE MANTA TRUST WAS FOUNDED TO TURN THE TIDE FOR THESE ENIGMATIC ANIMALS.

Through research, education, and collaboration, we co-ordinate global efforts to conserve mantas, their relatives and their habitats. We’re a charity made up of people dotted around the world, with different backgrounds and diverse skills, but all united by the same goal.

We have to step-up our efforts to have the impact mantas need - and we can’t do it without your help!
