Manly SeaLife Centre start Seahorse Surveys

By December 20, 2013The Seahorse Trust News

Seahorses around the world are little understood but Robbie and his team from Manly Sealife Centre in Sydney Harbour have launched a seahorse survey in partnership with the trust to try and find out more about them. Robbie and the team have done a couple of dives now and found some Hippocampus whitei and they know there are several other species in the area. Diving in the area is interesting as they have to dive around the shark nets, so they keep one eye out for seahorses and one for sharks makes for a very interesting dive !!! We hope to expand the seahorse surveys out to all Sealife Centres around the world in 2014, so that we can build a world knowledge on the species, its behaviour and distribution.
