We will be organising a programme of special manta weeks throughout the year so please contact us or keep an eye out on this website for future announcements (Research Weeks). The next planned research trip is in January 2015 when we will be researching the lost population of Donkalo thila!.

In September 2013 we commenced a programme of Manta Ray awareness workshops aimed at marine biologists and watersports and dive centre staff in the Maldives as part of an IUCN project to monitor study and protect marine megafauna which are important to tourism. The first workshop was held at LUX* Resort Maldives in South Ari atoll and we were fortunate to attract many of the stakeholders of the South Ari Atoll Marine Protected Area.
