Oil wildlife rescue

« posted: 8 years ago »
Sea wildlife experts are breeding hundreds of rare seahorses to replace creatures wiped out by the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.

The Atlantic dwarf seahorses - which measure just 1.2 inches long - are the smallest of 40 different types of seahorse.

Marine biologists at the House of the Sea in the Austrian capital, Vienna, have successfully begun breeding the creatures in captivity.

Now they hope to be able to use the tiny seahorses to help repopulate the polluted Gulf once clean up workers have dispersed all the oil.

sadly, breeding colonies are having a difficult time recovering from the disaster. :(
