By | The Seahorse Trust News | No Comments

We are now an official charity on the e-bay site which is fantastic news. You can now donate via e-bay by clicking the ‘My Favourite Charities’ on the e-bay page and select The Seahorse Trust. It’s quick and easy and will help the conservation and research work of the trust; the more we can raise the more we can do.

We are pleased to announce that Mark Carwardine, the world renown zoologist, naturalist, author, broadcaster, photographer and conservationist has kindly agreed to become a patron of The Seahorse Trust.

Marks passion for the environment has been seen many times on theTelevision and through his superb photographs, he has documented some of natures wonders and as an author of some 50 books he has inspired so many of us to be aware of the natural world and what is happening to it.

His passion for the problems facing the world inspire many of us to get out there and do something about it even if it is just have a conversation, the more people are aware of the problems the world is facing the more we can do and Mark thorugh his work has been an amazing catalyst for just that.

Please vote on the BORG website

Dear all,

there is a new group of boat owners set up called the BORG who have a website (link below) where you can vote to ban anchoring and mooring at Studland Bay. Please cut and paste the link into your browser.

The moorings and anchoring at Studland are degradating the seagrass meadow at Studland Bay which means that when it is gone there will be no home for these amazing animals and it will be another little bit of the wild gone forever.

The Seahorse Trust strongly feels that environmentally friendly moorings should be put into Studland and get everyone to use these rather than mooring on conventiental moorings, this way the damage is stopped and everyone can still use this site. It is the best solution under the circumstances. If you feel as strongly as we do about this site then please vote to ban conventional mooring on the site.

Dont forget you can also have your say on the MCS website on the Your Sea you Voice page where you can vote for Studland to become protceted. It is only by people power can we cahnge these harmful practises.


Happy New Year from all at The Seahorse Trust.
