Mantah Corp is a bioengineering and a genetic-oriented company that is the main antagonistic faction of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. The company is often seen sending spies to attempt to acquire InGen’s and Masrani Global's research and technology for their own uses. According to Darius Bowman, Mantah Corp is a rival to Biosyn as well, confirming that it is a separate entity from Biosyn.

Background

Before 2015

Sometime before 2015, Mantah Corp was formed under president Daniel Kon, who purchased an island to house the main facility, creating multiple controlled enclosures of multiple biomes in order to hide their operation. Here they would both smuggle animals over from Isla Sorna and clone new animals, intending to use them in bloodsport entertainment that the elite would pay to watch. Kash D. Langford would eventually be hired as an island technician and supervisor, creating drones and robots known as BRADs to accomplish the latter task, and Mae Turner to study and care for the animals located there.

When the Gutierrez family ranch sought out a loan, which was given by agents fronting for Mantah Corp. Sometime before 2015, Mantah Corp requested that the family send their daughter, Sammy Gutierrez to be a corporate spy, or everything they had worked on over the years would be repossessed. While the family denies their request, Sammy opted to accept their request to Camp Cretaceous to stop her family from going into debt.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

Season 1

Partcipating in Camp Cretaceous as a spy, Sammy is tasked with stealing sensitive information from the Research Lab, stealing Sinoceratops skin samples, and loading an RC drone with Dr. Wu's files. Sammy sneaks back into Wu's personal office, (presumably) steals a USB stick with sensitive information on it, and bumps into Brooklynn in the back rooms, telling her she got lost on the way to the washroom... When Brooklynn is editing one of her videos, she catches Sammy in the act of stealing cell samples from the Sinoceratops, to which Sammy steals her phone to delete the video. When Brooklynn notices her destroyed phone (cracked from their fall from a zip line) fall out of Sammy's pocket, Sammy tells the group about her efforts with Mantah Corp. The van's driver, Yaz, turns sharply in her seat after Sammy reveals the truth, crashing the van into a large tree, stranding the group, and destroying the van.

Season 2

The campers speculate Mantah Corp's involvement in the creation of both the Indominus rex and the Scorpios rex, but find nothing.

Season 3

A Mantah Corp drone arrives at Isla Nublar, only to be attacked and destroyed by the Scorpios rex. Sammy later tries to figure out why Mantah Corp sent her to Jurassic World.

Season 4

After the campers attempted to leave Isla Nublar and get attacked by the recently escaped Mosasaurus, they ended up stranded on Mantah Corp's island. There they meet Mae, who is initially skeptical of their tale of being stranded on Nublar for so long, but gain her trust as they help save the animals put under strange tests by Mantah Corp and said tests make her realize she hasn't been told the truth behind the operation. Fed up with these new tests she confronts her boss Kash, whom after a brief argument sets the BRADs to kill her, and although she is wounded by a pair of Velociraptors kept in the same area, the campers help her survive the incident whilst Kash finds her raptor torn clothing. By the next day, Kash dragged both a Kentrosaurus named Pierce and a Tyrannosaurus named Big Eatie in order for the island's first test fight. The Campers attempt to stop the fight and keep Kash away, but fail and Darius Bowman is captured, but manages to convince Kash that the dinosaurs are too valuable to simply have killed in a test fight. After Darius forced him to realize how fragile the BRADs are, Kash created an upgraded BRAD-X and set one to foil Darius' frequent escape attempts.

With Mae out of the way, Kash began looking into her research and her attempts to communicate with dinosaurs using their own sounds and how their emotions are read, giving him an idea on how to work chips into controlling the animals against his bosses orders. This ends in failure though, as it failed to control any animals beyond a simple forced stay and the campers keeping many of the animals from becoming effective test subjects, including a group of baby dinosaurs they let out of their pens. While the search was going on, the first capture and shipment of animals from Isla Nublar was successfully operated, with a group of Pteranodon complicating plans on recapturing the escaped animals. The plan ultimately ended with Kash being locked in Mae's old home. Kash quickly escaped his captors however, and forms a trap alongside his boss Daniel Kon which successfully captures the campers.

Trivia

  • Mantah Corp are comparable to Jurassic Park's Biosyn, in that they are both genetics companies that rival the owners of the dinosaur theme parks (InGen and Masrani Global, respectively), engage in corporate espionage and morally dubious business practices, and have attempted to engage the services of an individual affiliated with the park to steal crucial research for them.
  • The company's name is likely an allusion to the mythical manticore. A mythical creature, it is a chimera made up of several different animals including a lion, a human, and a scorpion. This is also likely a nod to Mantah Corp and InGen being companies that work in creating creatures made from the genetic information of different animals. In addition to the company's name being an allusion to the manticore, the company logo looks like a lion's head, and manticores are part lion. The company logo also looks like the head of a Xenomorph from the Alien franchise.
