Affliates and Partners

 

Our friends and colleagues found in the UK and further afield

Proyecto Seahorse Perú

Working to Protect Peru’s Seahorses

The project has been set up by Angela Stefany and is making a big difference to our knowledge of seahorses in Peru. We are understanding more about their location, numbers fished and behaviour.
“Project Seahorse Peru is a research project whose main objective is to learn more about the bycatch and knowledge of fishermen and to understand about the Pacific Seahorse (Hippocampus ingens) in Peru, as well as educating the coastal population and students about the conservation of seahorses”.
Like with so many projects around the world, The Seahorse Trust works with Angela and the team at Proyecto Seahorse Peru and we share ideas and thoughts on seahorses and their conservation. We have been advising the team on databases and methods of surveying, not just underwater but amongst the fishermen and local communities as well.
