Our vision is a world in which marine ecosystems are healthy and well-managed

Project Seahorse is a marine conservation organisation committed to the conservation and sustainable use of the world’s coastal marine ecosystems. We generate cutting-edge research and turn our findings into highly effective conservation interventions. We collaborate with other researchers, governments, and local communities.

By working to protect seahorses, Project Seahorse supports marine conservation more broadly. Seahorses suffer from the same pressures and benefit from many of the same interventions as other marine life.

They are threatened by overfishing and habitat loss. Action for seahorse conservation directly benefits other marine animals, particularly when it comes in the form of marine protected areas or improved governance.

Small organization, big results

Our innovative and nimble approach means that we have been very successful for our small size. Led by Dr. Amanda Vincent and Dr. Heather Koldewey, global experts on seahorse conservation, we have been recognized with many international awards and honours, including the Rolex Award for Enterprise and the Whitley Award in Animal Conservation. 

Over the years, Project Seahorse has:

  • Developed research and management options to drive the recovery of seahorse populations and habitats around the world.
  • Created marine protected areas and protocols for effective conservation of many marine fish species.
  • Empowered a coalition of one thousand desperately poor fishing families in Asia.
  • Reconciled disparate interest groups to move traditional Chinese medicine consumption towards sustainability.
  • Prompted a new regulatory option for marine fish exports globally.

With your help, we will embark on another wave of strategic and effective conservation ventures, protecting marine life and ecosystems from overfishing, habitat loss, and bycatch.
