Queen of the Mantas

Big Wave’s newest addition to the BBC2’s flagship series, Natural World, will air on Thursday 12th November.

At up to 7 metres long, manta rays are one of the largest and most intelligent fish in the ocean.  Yet despite their size and curious nature, almost nothing is known about their lives.  ANDREA: QUEEN OF MANTAS charts a year in life of young American biologist, Andrea Marshall, who gave up everything for a life in Mozambique, living alongside one of the largest populations of mantas in the world.  From the discovery of a giant new species to remarkable insights into manta,s secretive lives, Andrea’s findings are set to rock the world of marine biology.
