Seahorse Conservation

Seahorses for Future Generations 

Birch Aquarium’s talented aquarist team has been rearing seahorses in captivity for more than 20 years. You can see many of these Birch Aquarium-born seahorses on display, and thousands have been sent around the world to help reduce collection pressure on wild populations. Birch Aquarium has shipped seahorses to more than 100 zoos and aquariums around the world. We have successfully raised 12 species of seahorse and our Seadragon Breeding Program was created in 2012 to focus on these unusual Seahorse cousins.
