Oceanic Manta 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.

The Oceanic Manta Ray (Manta birostris) is the world’s largest living ray, and also has the largest brain to body mass ratio of all fish. They can live for decades and grow to have a wingspan of more than 20 feet. They are migratory and travel across the world’s oceans to feed. They are circumtropical and are found in all of REEF’s tropical regions, including TWA, HAW, TEP, CIP, and SOP regions.

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