Anyone can join iSeahorse—divers, fishermen, scientists, seahorse enthusiasts, or citizen scientists on a beach holiday. Upload photos and observations to iSeahorse to help identify seahorse species and advocate for their protection in different ocean neighborhoods.
Scientists from Project Seahorse and seahorse experts around the world will use this information to better understand seahorse behavior, species ranges and the threats seahorses face. The project plans to use this knowledge to improve seahorse conservation worldwide. The project includes an iPhone app in addition to the iSeahorse Website.
