World Seahorse Survey Database

Raised by 1 person in 8 months
The Seahorse Trust has been running the British Seahorse Survey since its inception in 1994 and this has led to seahorses in the United Kingdom being protected and allowed us to gather data to get both British species protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
We now know so much more about British seahorses as a result of this database and have made some amazing discoveries about this 'Little horse of the sea'

We also gather sightings from other parts of the world and have data from Ireland, Spain, Malta, France, Italy, America, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Bermuda, UAE, Russia, Australia and so many others countries and to make this data more useful we aim to set up a worldwide reporting system online with an interactive map to show roughly where all these seahorses are found (10km squares).

This will be backed up behind the scenes with a state of the art database.
By allowing controlled access (to the good guys, not those that want to harm seahorses) to the database we can help countries and researchers from around the world understand seahorses in greater detail and you can make this happen.

Can we have your help please to raise £3,000 to pay for the IT specialist who is on standby to make this interactive map and database a reality.

The knowledge we gather not only will help researchers but we can also increase our knowledge for educators as well. The more we know the more we can make a difference and you are crucial to this journey of exploration.

Please share our appeal far and wide and if you can help then please do. We need to gather this money quite urgently so we can start gathering more data straight away and put the extensive databases we already have online. To date we have in excess of 3,000 sightings of seahorses from around the world of many different species and the more information we can gather about them, the better our understanding and the better we can protect them for the future.

BUT time is running out. Our sister organisation Save Our Seahorses in Dublin estimates seahorses will be functionally extinct in 25 to 30 years, we cannot let this happen and with your help we will not.

Thank you
