Two UBC researchers were fortunate enough to witness this male seahorse giving birth in the waters off New South Wales in Australia in early November. They caught the moment on camera in one of the few videos of a birth in the wild.
All of us at Project Seahorse wish you the very best for this holiday season. Thank you for your continued support and engagement in our efforts to save seahorses and the shallow seas. Together let's create many more reasons for ocean optimism in 2016!
