This just happened with the Manta Ray, Mantas are so awesome, gentle, intelligent, curious, playful, not to mention HUGE! I think a dive with Mantas is officially on my bucket list, this sounds like an amazing adventure to swim with such majestic creatures in their ocean home. Sadly every time I learn more about a new animal I also become so frustrated with the way humans bulldoze their way through fragile habitat, wreak havoc on our oceans and marine life, and how we brutally butcher our fellow creatures for exotic cuisine and magical cures. I’m so happy to be able to paint my May Mantas Thrive painting to raise awareness about the realities Mantas face, it’s hard to be a gentle giant these days. The plight of Mantas right now reminds me so much of the plight of elephants, both awesome, intelligent, curious, playful and simply wonderful animals, both butchered for having one stupid thing people desire. Elephants are in danger of going extinct in the wild in possibly just a few years if something isn’t done to stop the butchering, let’s not let Mantas go down this same brutal road. If I were a bazillionaire I would build an army of environmental warriors to fight side by side my army of environmental lawyers!'
