Help Save The Seahorse By Stabbing At Your iPhone

Introducing iSeahorse, a citizen science project for the armored fish.

Seahorses are awesome. They’re covered in squishable armor that protects them from being crushed. They’re one of the only fish species with a neck, as well as one of the few to swim upright. They push the pain of pregnancy and childbirth off on the males of the species. Plus, um, have you ever looked at one? Look at that majestic, almost-equine face!   A new project called iSeahorse aims to bump up the number of people on the lookout for seahorses by allowing anyone—scientist, diver or beach-goer—to catalog any seahorse sightings they experience through an iPhone app and website.

About Indian Rocks Bridge

We have a HUGE responsibility to protect our children and their futures. Our Gulf of Mexico has nearly been destroyed by the Deep-water Horizon catastrophe and many families here will never recover. Paradise lost, so it goes. I’m doing my best to apolitically educate anyone that cares about the impact on our environment by technology and “for-profit” progress. We forget, too frequently that we SHARE this planet with millions of other life-forms and as the most “powerful” species, we must be more cognizant of our greed versus the well-being of our planet. Thanks again for visiting and please check back often. -Gregg
