The ABC television program The Wildlife Docs featuring veterinarians from Busch Gardens recently joined Guy Harvey and a team from the Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University at Stingray City in Grand Cayman. Researchers used advanced equipment to look for baby rays inside pregnant females.
Guy’s daughter Jessica, who recently joined the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, helped wrangle rays to the research boat. Dr. Mahmood Shivji and Dr. Brad Wetherbee from GHRI joined the production shoot. They’ve been working on the Stingray City project since 2002 to make sure the population stays healthy.
The area is considered the number one dive destination in the world, and it’s estimated that one ray generates hundreds of thousands of tourism dollars in the course of its lifetime.
What did Guy and the team from Wildlife Docs find out? The answer will be revealed this November on ABC. Please check local listings for details
