Project Seahorse is a marine conservation group dedicated to securing a world in which marine ecosystems are healthy and well-managed.
We generate cutting-edge research and turn our findings into highly effective conservation interventions — usually in collaboration with other researchers, governments, and local communities. Our innovative and nimble approach means that we have been very successful for our small size and limited resources.
Helmed by Dr. Amanda Vincent and Dr. Heather Koldewey, leading global experts on seahorse conservation, we have been recognized with international awards and honours, including the Rolex Award for Enterprise and the Whitley Award in Animal Conservation.
The team is composed of about 30 professional team members (plus village staff) working in Canada, Philippines, Portugal, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, and U.S.A. Project Seahorse has also managed projects in Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa and Vietnam, and maintains strong collaborations with colleagues in many more countries.
