New Manta ID – “Gabe”


This is citizen science.

Manta Mania 2017 produced 2 new manta ray IDs in the Yap Manta Project database.

This budding male put on a magical moment for one diver and her camera.

One of the most beautiful diving environments in Yap is the Caverns amphitheater in calm clear water, add a cleaning manta ray in the sun to the picture and it’s nothing short of magic.

“Gabe” is a 21 year-old member of the Yap family who is battling cancer and had the opportunity to dive with these rays before starting his second treatment.
