@_matthugh for @rainforestalliance. Seahorses are some of the most imperiled animals on earth. They are collected for the pet trade and for ‘medicinal’ purposes. This is a Lined Seahorse from Florida, USA. To me, seeing one of these mythical minibeasts in the ocean is far more rewarding than dried in a jar or in a tank. That magnificent mane should remain in the wild! #followthefrog #rainforestalliance #seahorse #underwaterphotography #conservation
