Comments: Ursula was first spotted by Karolle Wall and Shawn Caley near Ohukai Beach Park. This young female manta is named after Karolle’s niece, Ursula, who passed away at the age of seven on September 6th, 2018, after a long hard fight with brain cancer. May her spirit swim with the mantas, in the ocean she dearly loved.
