Andrea: Queen of Mantas

At up to 7 metres long, manta rays are one of the largest and most intelligent fish in the ocean. Yet despite their size and curious nature, almost nothing is known about their lives. ANDREA: QUEEN OF MANTAS charts a year in life of young American biologist, Dr. Andrea Marshall, who gave up everything for a life in remotest Mozambique, living alongside the largest population of mantas in the world. From the discovery of a giant new species to remarkable insights into manta's secretive lives; Andrea's findings are set to rock the world of marine biology.
