I just finished this personal project called “Manta Rays at Risk” using photos I took during my holidays in Maldives and Hawaii. The final movie is in 4k and you can download it on vimeo. Mantas have been classified as Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). They are at particular risk to overfishing because they produce very few young. Many populations have already been depleted by unregulated fishing. I decided to do a short animated film with the help of my friend José using the Project Aware Infographics. My goal is to create awareness on this matter and share this information in a different way. I hope you’ll like the movie and please feel free to share it. Thanks!
