R/V Manta Timelapse

December 2017

In national marine sanctuaries, boats aren't just boats. They're platforms for research, foundations for partnerships, and homes for scientists and crew out on the water. Boats help sanctuaries function, and help us understand and investigate these amazing places. So what's it like to be on one of our boats? Get a taste through this timelapse video from a research expedition in Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary aboard the R/V Manta. (Video: Eric Glidden)
