Name a Manta Ray

It’s time to celebrate a great goal achieved by Coco Collection’s Manta Ray Identification Project: On January 22nd in Baa Atoll, we have identified ANOTHER individual NEW to the Maldivian Manta Ray Database: it is the 50th new one we’ve identified since the beginning of our Project!

Name a Manta Ray

Identifying so many new Manta Ray individuals was possible thanks to the efforts of our Guests and Associates who are giving a precious contribution to the research on these still largely unknown creatures.The new Manta Ray is a 3 meters width female, her code is M3203.

Help us in choosing a name for her and post your suggestions in the comments below, on our Twitter Page or on our Facebook Page. Our Marine Biologist will randomly select a name by the beginning of next week, and “your” Manta Ray will be officially baptized! Then, of course, don’t forget to come and visit, to meet her in person…

  1. My proposal for naming the 50th manta ray is: Stella Maris
    This is derived from Latin and means “Star of the Sea”.
    Whereas there is a double-meaning of “star” which suits perfectly correct for this manta ray.
