In a remarkable conservation effort, local scientists achieved a major milestone by releasing approximately 380 juvenile White’s seahorses into Sydney Harbour. This unprecedented event, considered the largest release of these enchanting marine creatures into the wild, took place at Chowder Bay in Mosman.
After being carefully bred and nurtured in captivity at the esteemed Sydney Institute of Marine Science (Sims), the baby seahorses were relocated to specially designed “hotels” to ensure their safe settlement. This inspiring initiative not only rejuvenates the seahorse population but also showcases the dedication of scientists and organizations towards preserving our precious marine ecosystems. A triumph for marine conservation!
