"A few fishers I met even tried to culture seahorses because their children love them."
Understanding the taxonomy, distributions and genetic connections among populations of seahorses is vital for conservation assessments and planning. Project Seahorse is a leading authority on seahorse biology and ecology.
Successful marine conservation depends on knowledge about the habitat needs of threatened species. Project Seahorse is undertaking a long-term study on the recovery of degraded coral reef within marine protected areas.
Project Seahorse tracks conservation gains from the multilateral Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), helping to ensure that the global seahorse trade is being regulated.
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.
