From the blog

"A few fishers I met even tried to culture seahorses because their children love them."

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.

Seahorses are valuable global commodities that are traded around the world for use in traditional Chinese medicine, aquaria, and for curiosities. Project Seahorse works to promote the sustainable consumption of seahorses.

Working with people who have first-hand knowledge of the ecosystems that sustain them, Project Seahorse works with coastal communities in the Philippines, helping them to manage their marine resource sustainably and ensure food security.
