Covered in blue spots, the bluespotted ribbontail ray is instantly recognizable as it swims along the seafloor. Running the length of their tail is also a long blue “ribbon” of color, which contributes to their already striking appearance.
Such colors are not just for show, they are a warning to predators of the ray’s venomous tail spines.While populations of these rays are increasing, they still face threats from overfishing and habitat loss due to color bleaching events driven by warming oceans.
When you make a symbolic adoption, your donation helps power Oceana’s campaigns to implement responsible fishing practices and combat the climate crisis, protecting these magnificent rays and preserving their habitat.
