Project is inactive

Seahorses are powerful ambassadors for ocean health. Researchers from Project Seahorse—a marine conservation team based at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and the Zoological Society of London (ZSL)—identified and reviewed new findings related to 35 of the 46 seahorse species found around the globe, all of them posted by citizen scientists using the team's iSeahorse program, part of the iNaturalist family. iSeahorse is a tool for seahorse science and conservation. iSeahorse harnesses the power of community scientists — anyone, anywhere in the world who sees a seahorse in the wild — to improve understanding of these animals and protect them from overfishing and other threats.

Thanks to diligent observers, seahorses, those enigmatic and charismatic fish, are not only being discovered in new habitats and expanded geographic ranges, they are also being found at new ocean depths.
