Effective marine conservation must be complemented by sound policy. As the IUCN Red List Authority on seahorses and their relatives, Project Seahorse works with governments, authorities and international organizations to develop successful conservation policies.
Human activity can threaten the balance between organisms and their environment. Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are an important conservation tool for protecting marine ecosystems from overfishing and habitat loss. Project Seahorse has been leading MPA research and implementation for over a decade.
