Manta ray Apollo

In this image released by Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in Nassau, Bahamas, the 650-pound manta ray Apollo is transferred from the resort’s marine habitat back into the Atlantic Ocean as part of their release and research program.

Apollo, the resort’s fifth successful manta release, was equipped with a satellite tracking device that will gather information of the types of habitats it frequents, the depth and temperature ranges, helping with conservation decisions of the species.
