Certification Card of Manta & Ray Ecology

SSI has launched a new ecology program – Manta & Ray Ecology. Like all SSI Ecology programs, Manta & Ray Ecology is ideal for anyone that wants to learn more about these unique fish.

When you think of a ray, what image comes to mind? Is it a southern stingray lurking beneath the pearl white sand, or a majestic spotted eagle ray hovering over a large coral block? Perhaps it’s the grandfather of them all, the giant manta ray, which can measure six meters from fin tip to fin tip and glides through the open ocean like an owl cutting through the silence of an evening chill.

In this program, you’ll explore what makes a ray a ray, distinguish how they differ from sharks, locate where they live, discover what they eat, and learn how to identify one ray from the next.

The minimum age to participate is six (6) years old and ten (10) years old if they are going to participate in the optional scuba training dives.


SSI Ecology Programs

Education and training are the first steps in protecting the oceans. SSI offers a variety of ecology programs including Marine Ecology, Shark Ecology, Sea Turtle Ecology, Fish Identification, Coral Identification and Manta & Ray Ecology. These programs educate our customers about marine ecosystems and the various sea creatures that inhabit them. These programs are intended to educate and teach students how to behave underwater and around individual animals.

Sorry, but I think the content or material needs to be updated. There has been a reclassification due to DNA studies, the animals formerly known as 'manta' have been formally re-classified as Mobula birostris and Mobula alfredi. If we are going to present these as scientific studies, I believe the latest information should be presented.

My fiance and I have access to the course, but only the final exams are available, no sections with reading to learn. Is there something we're missing??
