Exciting news manta whānau – we made the front cover and feature article on the NZ Geographic!

So much effort went into getting our story out there and we are so stoked it all came together.

This story goes through everything from what questions we are trying to answer, what we have found so far, what a typical day out on the boat looks like and their significance to Mātauranga Māori and local iwis as the mauri (lifeforce) of the ocean, and the Hauraki Gulf.

This is really exciting because it means we can reach a wider audience and share the manta love with more people which in turn will help support our kaupapa.

We have linked the story in our bio so please have a read if you’re interested and share it around so we can get more people on board!

Thank you all so much again for all your mahi, we are always so grateful

This was a huge team effort and we will never forget that, special thank you to Lydia Green, Mark Erdmann, Edy Setyawan, Richard Robinson, Clinton Duffy, Kate Evans Robinson, Nicola MacDonald, Ngāti Manuhiri, Ngāti Rehua, Schannel van Dijken, The University of Auckland, Department of Conservation, Tindale Marine Research Charitable Trust, Manta Trust.
