Help Save the Manta Rays
Steps to help Save Manta Rays: • Avoid eating fish when possible and use the app Seafood Watch to ensure you’re being served the most sustainable species when you are eating out or shopping for fish. • Read pet-food labels to make sure fish ingredients are from sustainable species, and never flush commercial, non-biodegradable cat litter down the toilet. • Boycott restaurants with shark-fin soup on the menu. • Buy organic produce to avoid the pesticides on regular plant products, which can run into rivers and oceans. • Carry a reusable water bottle and try to avoid purchasing food in plastic containers. • Pick up litter on the sand and in the water when you’re at the beach • Consider supporting organizations like WildAid, Manta Ray of Hope, Shark Savers, or the Oceanic Preservation Foundation.

@sjeanyoon @imliz its about sea world and the poor treatment of whales, but theres some pretty scary footage of whale in captivity. Definitely a good documentary to watch if youre interested in that!
@Sjeanyoon I imagined holding on to the front of the ray and lying across its back--in a safe way both for me and the ray of course! @nokcha Black Fish was a very eye-opening documentary... so sad to think those animals are treated so poorly =/ I guess even if I had the opportunity to ride a manta ray I wouldnt / shouldnt
