Manta Ray Conservation - Peru
Acuatours is a small independent travel company providing specialist photographic tours for photographers, videographers and tourists to some of the best wildlife and marine megafauna encounter sites in the world. We offer dive trips to suit your needs to some new, little known destinations, or to some of the most popular - as well as our popular premium content wildlife photography trips to Scotland.
Acuatours was originally built from our pioneering efforts to bring about conservation status to a population of giant manta rays found off of the coast of Ecuador, and we were the first operator to offer diving with manta rays in Ecuador to international tourists. We have now moved the focus of our project from Ecuador to Peru where there still exists a fishery for these giant rays. The population we identified as being globally significant in Ecuador is known to migrate to Peru where there is no legislative protection. Acuatours is currently seeking a core of volunteers to assist with this project in the winter of 2013/14 in conjunction with the Manta Trust. Download the 2014 Itinerary.
Whilst we have since developed our popular basking shark and other wildlife focused activities, this manta project remains a core foundation of Acuatours' work, so even if you don't wish to travel to Peru to partake in the project, by supporting us via our other itineraries, you will also be making a valuable contribution to manta conservation.
