The ball aims to raise awareness about the mantas plight and includes a silent auction, entertainment and information, finger food and a raffle. Through manta tourism the businesses and community of the Ningaloo Reef area have been able to make an income and here is a chance to give something back.
“We swim with mantas almost everyday and get to see them enjoy their natural habitat. Mantas should be safe to swim ocean wide not only in dedicated marine parks. As divers we want the chance to see manta rays everywhere these animals choose to populate. We hope one day everywhere can benefit from eco tourism as Coral Bay has.” Diana Belton.
