Cownose Ray - Conservation Creature Plush


REEF Conservation Creatures are iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life. We hope they inspire you to join REEF and learn more about the marine environment.

Cownose Ray (Rhinoptera bonasus) are strong swimmers and migrate long distances in large schools of up to thousands of individuals. When swimming near the surface, these rays are sometimes mistaken for sharks because the tips of their wings closely resemble a shark's dorsal fin. They are found in temperate and tropical waters including REEF’s TWA, SAS, and NE regions.

You can chose to simply purchase the plush, or symbolically adopt the Conservation Creature and help further REEF's marine conservation mission.
