The marine conservation organization Project Seahorse has launched a new effort, Expedition Danahon Bank, a collaboration between scientists, conservationists, and nature photographers to capture the beauty of this rare but threatened double reef system in the Philippines. You can enjoy some of these extraordinary images HERE.

Learn more about how these marine conservationists are trying to protect seahorses and their coral reef homes in The Scientists in the Field title PROJECT SEAHORSE. Saving these reefs will also help local families who depend upon the reefs for their survival!
