Discovering A Second Species of Giant Manta Ray

Watch more with these video collections:

Beautiful footage of giant manta rays in Mozambique, including an interview with conservation biologist Dr. Andrea Marshall, who has lived there since 2003. 

Andrea’s world-leading manta ray research program (which has examined aspects of their biology, reproductive ecology, habitat use and social behaviour) has dramatically increasing the level of knowledge on manta rays. Her recent discovery of a new giant species of manta ray in 2008 was one of the largest new species to have been described by any scientist in the last 50 years.

There are more videos with rays in the archives.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
