Enormous Thanks (Manta Fund Raiser)

Many Hands Make Light Work.

Last week, three marine conservation organisations came together to bring about a memorable night in the company of Martin Clunes to watch his documentary about the beauty of manta rays and also the threats that they face from increasing targetted activity from fishermen.
After the screening in stunning BluRay, Martin was interviewed by writer Tim Ecott. Mr Clunes was a superb laugh as we would all expect, and the mood was set for the ensuing raffle and Auction which raised an unexpectedly generous amount; a shade over eight thousand pounds.
It is often telling on all of our characters when we see daily, the negative impact of human activity on our oceans. On the night of the 24th March 2011 it was particularly encouraging to see the positive energy brought to the May Fair cinema to do something positive.
Bite Back, The Marine Megafauna Foundation and the Pacific Elasmobranch Foundation all greatly appreciate your support at this event and for our work.

We would like to especially thank: The May Fair Hotel, All of our sponsors who are all listed on the link below, as well as Jamie Watts who donated his beautiful marine life artwork, and of course, Martin Clunes and Tim Ecott for their valuable time on the night.
