The data has been extracted from the Gaia Guide (http://www.gaiaguide.info/) and is based upon information about islands in the area from the Atlas of Living Australia and from staff at the Lady Elliot Island Resort. In particular, the launch icon is based on the manta ray photo by Chris Garraway, long time dive master at Lady Elliot Island's dive shop and enthusiastic supporter of project Manta (http://earthwatch.org/expeditions/project-manta).
