Releasing of seahorses in Sydney
In Australia, divers released about 100 seahorses in Sydney Harbor, who were brought out in a special aquarium. White seahorses are threatened with extinction, so the Australian authorities have adopted a special program to restore their population.
For this, nine so-called hotels were created at the bottom of Sydney Bay. These are cells with imitation of algae inside, for which seahorses cling to their tails. In these hotels, unique marine creatures can hide from predators.
A senior marine fellow at the Department of Primary Fisheries said they released newborn seahorses to these underwater hotels to watch them grow and develop. They cannot release them immediately into the wild, since in this case we cannot find out how many of them survived, and then the success of our program will be in question.
