seahorseSeahorses reside in some of the most threatened marine habitats and millions are removed yearly for use in traditional medicines, aquariums and as dried trinkets. Come learn about the presence of seahorses in the Indian River Lagoon, what research is being done to help them and most importantly, what you can do to help them stay here for centuries to come!

Dr. Sarah Krejci is a post-doctoral fellow and adjunct professor at Bethune Cookman University. Dr. Krejci has been working with seahorses for more than 10 years and hopes they can serve as an ambassador for habitat restoration and environmental education.
