Eagle ray migration

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

Even within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park the Spotted Eagle Ray is an uncommon sight. They are very shy by nature and their numbers are threatened through commercial fishing bycatches, so to witness not just one but a travelling family of these graceful and beautiful animals was a remarkable sight.
