This task is to be fulfilled by an organization that goes by the name Maldivian Manta Ray Project (MMRP). The main focus of this project is to learn about the natural habitats and the life cycles of these exotic creatures and study about the population statistics. Consequently, the Maldivian Manta rays project is completely dedicated to work together with the locals and the government along with the tourists to create the most favorable atmosphere for the manta rays to nurture. Since there are hundreds of different types of manta rays in Maldives as of now, it has been decided that Maldives is the ideal location for this research to be done on.
