Call for Images: Historic Manta ID shots
Wetpixel member and contributor Burt Jones is appealing for “historical” image contributions to the Bird’s Head Seascape Manta ID database. Specifically, they are seeking images of mantas taken in Raja Ampat in 2009 or earlier. The database already has over 1400 identified individuals. While mantas are protected within Indonesia, they are not in all the countries of rhe coral triangle. By showing that they have large migratory patterns, this can be used to motivate governments to institute protections internationally.
