Affliates and Partners

Our friends and colleagues found in the UK and further afield

An organisation is only as good as the friends and colleagues it works with from around the world. Here at The Seahorse Trust we are incredibly lucky to have so many friends and partners, literally from around the world, and below is a small list of just some of them.

Thank you to them all for their support.

Pioneering a #ReuseRevolution

Our friends at Beauty Kitchen are on a mission to create the most effective, natural, and sustainable beauty products in the world – with B Corp & Cradle to Cradle principles in mind. Beauty Kitchen have continually sponsored our work at The Seahorse Trust over the years by committing to donating 1% of sales (not profits!) of their award winning, 100% vegan Seahorse Plankton+ range – most recently to The Studland Seahorse Project.

In the UK over 95% of beauty packaging is thrown away after just one use. Beauty Kitchen are determined to change that by pioneering their groundbreaking Return•Refill•Repeat programme & Refill Stations!

“To become a Beauty Kitchen product, it must do three things: first, it has to really work. Second, it has to give great results with only naturally derived ingredients. And third – it has be sustainable, both inside and out. That’s our promise.” Jo-Anne Chidley, Founder

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”.
As 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.

Bermuda Seahorse Project

Working in partnership with Jessica Reiderer recording the seahorses of Bermuda

The Seahorse Trust works with many partners throughout the world and we also advise many projects on surveys, captive breeding and education through our Seahorse Alliance.

Not only do we work with organisations, we also work with individuals who are passionate about their environment and, especially, seahorses.

One of these dedicated people is Jessica Reiderer of Bermuda, who has been recording and photographing seahorses for many years and has made many discoveries along the way.

SeaBeneath

Educate to inspire, inspire to protect

Jemma is from the UK, but spends most of her time on a liveaboard dive boat, inspiring others to love and appreciate the sea and its incredible inhabitants.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, she still wanted to do her bit to protect and educate and so she set up SeaBeneath, the amazing website where you can learn about all sorts of marine creatures, not just seahorses.

We are pleased to be partners of SeaBeneath and encourage others to have a look at Jemma’s amazing website and be inspired.
