    what an interesting piece….sea horses are amazing and I’m glad there are groups raising awareness and seeking to protect them….it would be a shame if they were lost….

    Yes, they are so beautiful and I love the way their tails wrap around things in their environment. Someone told me that the Chinese harvesting of sea horses are actually decreasing because of the increase use of Viagra (a copy in China). That’s a pretty good slogan – Use Viagra! Save the Sea Horses.

    who would have known….viagra may save many fish and animals….in addition to sea horses, rhinos, deer, snakes, turtles and many others are used for ‘stamina’…. viva viagra! ;-)

    I think they should take that angle on their next ad campaign, instead of the embarrassing ones with the professional athletics…
