Sunken boats, flattened houses, toppled trees — the villages of the Danajon Bank, profiled in PROJECT SEAHORSE, have been hit hard by Typhoon Haiyan. The staffs of Project Seahorse and their partner, the London Zoological Society, have added post-typhoon and post-earthquake aid to their marine conservation activities. Dr. Amanda Vincent, co-founder of Project Seahorse, is blogging about the relief efforts.

If you’d like to help out, Project Seahorse and the London Zoological Society have partnered up to help these communities via a donations appeal.
