With our partners at GoFundMe we have set up a donation based campaign to hep us fund the work at Studland Bay in Dorset, which was home to the largest group of seahorses in the UK. Sadly, despite legal protection this site has become fragmented and the seahorse numbers have dropped from 40 in 2008 down to one in 2014.

We are petitioning the Government to make this a Marine Conservation Zone but we need your help with funding to make this a reality. By funding our research and lobbying efforts for Studland Bay you will be helping us to ensure the legal protection we got seahorses afforded in 2008 is implemented.
