Short Snouted Seahorses

Learning about the loss of our seagrass meadows was so sad. Since the 1900s, we’ve lost 95% of carbon dioxide soaking sea grass meadows in East Yorkshire.

Seahorses immidiately came to mind as their habitat is mostly shallow seabed grass meadows where they can be seen clinging to vegetation.

With small pectoral fins and a delicate dorsal fin, seahorses are poor swimmers- they delicately navigate their way through the waves with very calulated, careful manuvers.

I have created the coral in this piece by preserving lichon covered branches.
