Save the Sea Horses

20% of sales will support this project

The Tagus river is full of life, and we want people to get to know the curious, lesser-known and almost magical creatures that inhabit our water- seahorses. They are in trouble and require urgent assessments of their population and extinction risk and we are here to help.

We have partnered with Sea the Future and created a collab t-shirt directly to support this project. The Tagus Seahorse project works to understand and protect this population of seahorses through comprehensive scientific studies in the area and through community outreach programs.




TAGUS SEAHORSE 

Tagus Seahorse is a project born in 2023, after a high density of seahorses was discovered in Trafaria, a coastal fishing town south of Lisbon. The specialist group responsible for seahorses within the IUCN Species Survival Commission emphasizes the urgent need for population assessments and long-term monitoring for many species, including the long and the short snouted seahorses – both found in the Lisbon area.

One of the greatest threats to Trafaria’s population of seahorse is the excessive amount of pollution in the river, which can cause deaths through potential entanglement and compromise the health of animals due to the degradation and consumption of microplastics. Other threats include destructive and illegal fishing techniques which can kill several marine species, including the seahorses and the habitat they depend on.

Saving seahorses is not just about preserving a unique and beautiful species; it's also about protecting the health and biodiversity of our oceans. By working together, we can make a real difference and ensure that these magical creatures continue to grace our seas for generations to come.
