Manta Behavior and Biology
The charismatic Manta ray is also present with large individual numbers in the Blue Kingdom area; we have counted up to 450 mantas from the air. We have followed them through satellite, acoustic and photographic tracking devices. We have started genetic studies to determine the possible existence of a third species. Now, in 2018, we will continue observations and detailed records to describe and understand their behavior. The documentation by means of photography and video will be fundamental to obtain estimates of the population and to know its total length, sex ratio, maturity and presence of pregnant organisms. Up to date: We are very proud to announce that they became a protected species in Mexico!
