Seahorse Trust launches a “Stop The Curio Trade” campaign in seahorses worldwide

The Seahorse Trust has announced in its latest newsletter that it is launching a campaign to protect seahorses from being exploited worldwide by the curio trade. This campaign is necessary the Trust believes because, unless successful, pressure on seahorse species globally from this trade and other practices e.g. fishing and medicinal use, will lead to the near extinction of the species.

The Seahorse Trust is therefore asking the public to report to the Trust any evidence which they come across of the curio trade. To see an effective video on this subject, with advice on how to approach this issue, see the Trust’s YouTube video
