Yesterday morning photographer Ivy Yin spotted this Manta off Palm Beach Island and sent the video to Dr. Andrea Marshall the @queenofmantas and co-founder of the Marine Megafauna Foundation. Dr. Marshall said they are studying this species here in southeast Florida and it could be a new species. Dr. Marshall and her team suspect southeast Florida is a nursery habitat. It's important that attention is given to conserving this species and its habitat. #ourchildrensearth

Do you have an old computer - phone - tablet that is sitting in the closet collecting dust? We know underfunded scientists working in remote regions of the world that would be eternally grateful for your gadgets. These devices will go directly to the front lines of protecting endangered species and habitats. This laptop is going to @global_wildlife_conservation scientist Dr. Jim Sanderson and to one of his small wild cat projects. Small wild cats maintain an important balance in many threatened habitats. There are 40 species of cats (7 big and 33 small) and the small cats receive less than 1% of the conservation funding for cats. We have many more projects that need your help. Send us a message for details.
