        Lady Elliot Island Mantas | Life on the Reef

        Learn about citizen science from Dr. Kathy Townsend and her team who studied manta rays on Lady Elliot Island, in this clip from Life on the Reef. Dr. Kathy Townsend and her team tracked the travels of the manta rays using acoustic tags and kept a photographic file that helped identify all of the manta rays they encountered. Divers from all over Australia have been able to upload their manta ray photos to this large - scale citizen science project called Project Manta on facebook.
