*"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.
