In 2016 I co-founded the Florida Manta Project, the first dedicated long term study of manta rays in the state of Florida, with my partner, marine biologist, Jessica Pate. This ongoing study has found that South Florida is a rare and critical nursery habitat for juvenile mantas, and that human activities from boating to fishing have negative impacts on the rays. Our ongoing work continues to unravel the mysteries of these amazing rays and seeks to mitigate negative anthropogenic impacts.
