Decades ago, Dr. Amanda Vincent was newly armed with a PhD and travelling around Germany when she came across a billboard that changed the course of her life. On a sign lit up in a German plaza was a marketing tagline to remember: “Seahorses are the most valuable exports from the Phillipines to help men with weak tails.” It marked the beginning of a profound career working to protect the unique species from issues like trade and illegal fishing. And while the charismatic fish may have given her organization – Project Seahorse – its name, Dr. Vincent’s work doesn’t stop there. The seahorse’s ecosystems, and the other animals that share those environments, are high on the agenda too.
