Happy Christmas and a fantastic New Year

By | The Seahorse Trust News | No Comments

Have a brilliant Christmas and a very good prosperous New Year and thank you from all here at The Seahorse Trust.

Don’t forget if you are  planning any fund raising events or just want to make a donation to our work, drop us a line and let us know, we can help to publicise your event here on the site or on our Facebook page. The more we can raise the more we can do for these incredible amazing creatures and the fragile habitat they live in, they are in severe danger in the wild and we need to do something now, not in the future when it is too late.

There are lots of ways to make donations or to get your supporters to make a donation to us, so check out the website and see how you can make a big difference. Click on any of the links at the bottom of each page to make an electronic donation such as by Virgin Giving or The Big Give or if you are an e-bayer you can choose us as your nominated charity.

Thank you

Happy Christmas

Mouse Mats

By | The Seahorse Trust News | No Comments

Trust volunteer Beccy has created some beautiful mouse mats with a picture of one of our study seahorses from Studland on it. The picture was taken by Beccy and her partner Jonny and shows just how stunning the seahorses are around our coastline.

If you want to buy a mouse mat they are £9.99 plus £1.49p&p. Of this £4.99 goes directly to support The Seahorse Trust.
Please contact Beccy direct on

Don’t forget Beccy and Jonny are setting up the research project in Malta and if you are interested in taking part then contact them on This amazing project will allow us working in partnership with a number of organisations in Malta to understand more about Seahorses in Malta and we can then compare the data we gather with the information we have gathered here in the UK as we have the same species as Malta does.

Salisbury Cathedral School Christmas Fair

By | The Seahorse Trust News | No Comments

We have to say a massive thank you to the staff and pupils of Salisbury Cathedral School for all their hard work in raising a massive £86 for The Seahorse Trust through their Christmas Fair.

Teacher Gillian Bathe has been working with the children for months now teaching them dance and art inspired by the movement of Seahorses in the wild.

The Seahorse Trust sent Gillain and the pupils a video made by graduate Joanna Whiting (who got a first for the documentary) of Bournemouth University. In the video, it shows the work of the trust at Studland in Dorset and shows footage taken by underwater videographer Doug Anderson showing seahorses swimming and living at Studland.

The pupils have used this footage to learn dance and explore art and some of the things they made were sold at the Christmas Fair.

Many thanks to one and all for all their hard work.
