Last year marked a milestone in manta conservation when the Indonesian government revealed it is to establish the world's largest manta ray sanctuary, encompassing six million square kilometres of ocean.
The new legislation now enforces full, nationwide protection for both manta species across Indonesia. To protect these giant rays still further, Dive Worldwide has added a conservation holiday to its portfolio in association with the Manta Trust that monitors the mantas off the Micronesian island of Yap.
A 14-day trip costs from £5,385 per person based on two sharing including flights, transfers, and 12 nights’ lodge/liveaboard accommodation, plus a donation of £100 to the Manta Trust.
