Meet The Team

In July 2008, the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia, partnered with uShaka Marine World in Durban, South Africa, to transport a manta ray, Nandi, from uShaka to the Georgia Aquarium. It is the first time that a manta ray has been moved from one side of the world to the other and the first time a manta ray has ever been on display in a U.S. aquarium. In order to make the 9,000-mile journey, many people were involved on both continents. Here are just a few that made the move with Nandi from South Africa to the Georgia Aquarium.
