Socorro Giant Manta Expedition

Socorro Island Baja California

 Members and students will be developing and collecting data via underbelly photographs and measurements for a new cutting edge cloud based database of giant mantas that we are developing using facial recognition software to allow researchers to learn more about these unknown pelagic animals. Blue Endeavors members may participate in this project or simply enjoy seeing the results in the evenings.
