Giant Manta observed in offshore waters of city after Six Years — WWF Pakistan

Two giant mantas, species that are a relative of the shark and stingray, were videoed swimming in the southwest of Karachi in the Arabian Sea on March 5, a statement issued by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Pakistan) said Sunday.

This species, recently declared “endangered” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and added to the IUCN Red List, was commonly found in Pakistan, but is now rarely seen. The last sighting of the giant manta was in the offshore waters north of Churna Island in October 2016.
