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 #147;Digoy" Paden to protect seahorses and the livelihood of local fishing families. Through their efforts the Handumon Marine Protected Area is now a model #147;underwater park" where marine life is safe from fishing.
