Savings Seahorses, Saving The Seas
Seahorses conjure images of mysterious creatures with a penchant for quirkiness through their faithful pairings and male pregnancy, but few people recognise them as the powerful ambassadors for ocean health that they are. Robust seahorse populations are dependent on healthy oceans. Around the world seahorses come under pressure from many factors including threatened coastal habitats, diverse fisheries and climate change.
We've partnered with Project Seahorse on the shared mission to help save the seahorses and show how they are pivotal in saving our oceans.
Pioneering research by Project Seahorse has identified that saving seahorses is about more than just looking at the species in isolation. Setting up marine protected areas, reining in negative fishing practices, and regulating wildlife trade can also support thousands of other marine species, and in effect will also save our oceans for future generations.
About Project Seahorse
Project Seahorse is an international group dedicated to securing a world where marine ecosystems are healthy and well-managed, using seahorses as a flagship species to generate action. Led by award-winning marine biologist Amanda Vincent and co-founder Heather Koldewey, Project Seahorse has made significant progress and measurable gains in marine conservation around the world. By working to protect seahorses and their habitats, they are also working to ensure marine ecosystems are healthy and well-managed. For over 25 years Project Seahorse has been advancing marine conservation. They hold a number of conservation achievements, including creating 35 marine protected areas, initiating the first global export controls for marine fishes, and now setting sights on working to end illegal wildlife trade and bottom trawling.Find out more
