From now on, #WORLDMANTADAY will be celebrated every September 17! I have been enthralled with Manta Rays since I was a little girl watching them glide across the water in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. I remember being with my dad in our fifth floor hotel room, looking at them through binoculars and being amazed by their size and beauty. Of course, no one knew anything about them back in the 1960s and 70s, so we weren’t allowed in the water with them. Now, we know they are Gentle Giants.
Mantas are endangered and it is up to us all to save them and other endangered species. Happy #WorldMANTADay!
