Seahorses, some of the ocean'snbsp;most charming fish, are in trouble.nbsp;In the past twenty years their populations has declined.nbsp;They are threatened by overfishing, pollution and climate change. In Handumon in the Philippines, villagers and conservationists have joined to protect the seahorse and the coral reefs wherenbsp;they live. Amanda Vincent and Heather Koldewey, founders of Project Seahorse, work with Filipino colleagues and local fishers like "Digoy" Paden to protect seahorses and the livelihood of local fishing families. Through their efforts the Handumon Marine Protected Area is now a model "underwater park" where marine life is safe from fishing.
