Overview

*"Another splendid demonstration of the work of Scientists in the Field.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review With their pony-shaped faces, fluttery swimming style, and pregnant fathers, seahorses are one of the ocean's most unusual fish. Unfortunately, overfishing, pollution, and climate change are threatening their survival. In ProjectSeahorse, the author Pamela S. Turner and the photographer Scott Tuason brilliantly show and tell the story of how conservationists and villagers in the Philippines are coming together to protect these oddly charming creatures, their coral reef habitat, and the livelihood of local fishing families.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"With striking images of coral-reef inhabitants, this photo-essay introduces Project Seahorse, an international effort to protect and rehabilitate the Danajon Bank, a double reef off a Philippine Island where seahorses once flourished...Tuason, a noted Asian marine photographer whose specialty is the Philippines, seems equally adept at photographing the land and people and the underwater world. This is another splendid demonstration of the work of Scientists in the Field."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Thanks to the fluent, information-rich narrative and to Tuason's engagingly up-close color photos of both human divers and of sea horses and other reef denizens, readers will come away with a much clearer understanding of the sea horse's distinctively "oddballbiology" and also of how one conservation success story hinged on cooperation between scientists and concerned local residents."—Booklist, review
