A tool for community science

Simply put, iSeahorse is a tool for seahorse science and conservation.

iSeahorse harnesses the power of  the community — anyone, anywhere in the world who sees a seahorse in the wild — to improve our understanding of these animals and protect them from overfishing and other threats.

Anyone can join
