Spotlight on Amanda Vincent

« posted: 8 years ago »
I'd just love to share with you Amanda Vincent's profile.  She is a goddess when it comes to seahorse conservation and she is the project director for Project Seahorse.

She was the first biologist to have the opportunity to study seahorses underwater and she has been studying about them, even to the point of documenting their extensive trade and commerce.  

She had also been very instrumental in getting a variety of seahorses included in the endangered species list, helping protect them from abject commercialism and from extinction!

I agree... I'd love to canonise her for protecting seahorses.

I'd like to share this PBS interview with her too:
