The goals of the Manta Naturalist Course are to expand the student's basic knowledge of manta rays, create awareness about manta ray research and conservation, and to familarize students with the Manta Tour Operator Standards.
Students will develop and practice a naturalist presentation about manta rays that they can then use with their guests on manta tours.
