Project Seahorse is committed to the conservation and sustainable use of the world’s coastal marine ecosystems. Our work is organized around three areas of focus:

Saving seahorses

Threatened by overfishing, destructive fishing practices, and habitat loss, seahorses are flagship species for a wide range of marine conservation issues. Through biological research, trade and policy work, marine protected areas, and citizen science, Project Seahorse ensures that seahorse populations and their habitats are healthy and well-managed. Read more


Securing shallow seas

Shallow seas — the first 10 metres of depth along the world’s coastlines — comprise many of the planet's valuable and threatened marine ecosystems, including reefs, mangroves, and seagrasses. Project Seahorse combines conservation research, sustainable fisheries management, and marine protected areas to secure shallow seas. Read more


Training conservationists

Under greater pressure than ever before, our oceans need more champions. Project Seahorse is training the next generation of scientists, conservationists, and advocates to stand up for our oceans. Read more
