Known for their beautiful and unique spot patterns, spotted eagle rays fill key roles in the marine ecosystem. As both predators and prey, they eat animals such as clams and conchs, while also being eaten by large sharks. Worldwide, more than one-quarter of marine rays are threatened with extinction from targeted fisheries, bycatch and loss of habitat.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari)

It is illegal to fish for or kill this beautiful and charismatic ray in Florida waters, however they are not protected under federal laws and international protections are limited as well. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), an organization that establishes the conservation status of species worldwide, lists them as near-threatened with a decreasing population trend.

In some countries, spotted eagle rays are harvested as food and are caught as bycatch (unintentional catch in commercial fisheries that target other species). Spotted eagle rays also face a variety of threats from habitat loss, harmful algal blooms, and entanglement in fishing gear. These threats, combined with their extremely low reproductive rate, make these rays vulnerable to population declines. To help create better conservation management plans for this species, Mote and other research institutions are defining the distribution, migration, feeding habits, growth rates, and reproductive biology of spotted eagle rays.

2nd pair

I’ve had my whale shark leggings for 3 years and they’re still going strong with ocean and pool use. Very comfy. Love the new ones great design they seem a little tighter. Would like rash guards in neutral colors to go with.

I feel like a slinky ray in these beautiful tights :)

INCREDIBLE: long enough and all!

I'm 6' (and 140 lbs) and have always struggled finding leggings that fit me right. I got a size M and I was absolutely stoked to see them be long enough to cover my ankles! I didn't have to cut them, which I found funny but love that these are customizable in that way. I'm shaped like a plank of wood so I was nervous about the waist being loose, but have had no issue with these sliding down. The quality is definitely apparent and I love supporting a small business.

Looking forward to trying them out later this week. They are beautiful and comfy.
