Project Seahorse Citizen Science Program Receives A Boost


Project Seahorse, the citizen science program aimed at helping raise awareness, protect and conserve sea horse populations worldwide, has received a boost from the Sea of Change Foundation and Aggressor Adventures.

The Sea Of Change Foundation is helping Project Seahorse maximize the value of its data by providing support for data analysis, helping promote community science and influencing policymakers across the globe.

Aggressor Adventures is helping Project Seahorse by providing Seahorse ID training to some of the staff on their liveaboards, who can then offer it to interested guests. This should help generate even more data and awareness.

Commenting on the new relationship, the Sea of Change Foundation’s Executive Director Samantha Whitcraft said:

“As divers, seeing amazing fish like seahorses is why we dive, so it is our duty to do all that we can to help protect them. Participating in citizen science is a great way to do that.”

While Wayne Brown, the CEO of Aggressor Adventures and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Sea of Change Foundation, commented:

“Aggressor Liveaboards are thrilled to participate in this community and citizen science initiative with both our staff and guests to help divers appreciate the wonder of seahorses, now and into the future.”
