Course Description: This course is designed for manta tour guides and operators in the marine tourism industry on the Kona Coast of the island of Hawaii. The course will include online learning and two face-to-face class sessions. The goals of the Manta Naturalist course are to expand the student’s basic knowledge of manta rays, create awareness about manta research and conservation both locally and globally, and to familiarize students with manta tourism and operator standards in Kona, Hawaii. Students will develop and deliver an interpretive educational briefing about manta rays. Ultimately, students will use this naturalist presentation in the workforce when conducting manta ray tours.
