I hope people don't find out where they are, and they have a chance to grow their population a little bit

This is a really interesting article and especially I am happy to learn that citizens like you and
I can make use of apps to assist researchers specializing in particular species such as "sea horses"
to collate new data and make great progress with new species discoveries. :-)

The oceans are truly incredible, they're like a whole other world within ours ~ so much is still unknown about many species in the ocean ~ Yet humans seem intent on destroying them ~ Thanks Cal

Amazing! They are so small. Let's hope they stay safe now that they've been "discovered".

Seahorses are amazing animals. I think that it is wonderful the ordinary people can help scientists keep track of and learn about different animals. What a useful app!

Glad to know about these beautiful creatures! Let's hope their discovery in the new location won't decrease their numbers, especially since they are already rare.
