Following our partnership with The Seahorse Trust last year (donating 5p of every bottle of Seahorse sold towards the Trust) we have adopted a seahorse which we have affectionally named Hoppy.
Hoppy was discovered by a family who were crabbing in the Salcombe Estuary by The Crabshell in Kingsbridge back in October 2014. The Spiny Seahorse (Hippocampus guttulatus) was then safely put back into the water, after taking photos and videos of this amazing creature.
This May, we are also donating 5p a PINT of Seahorse towards the trust. We’re thrilled to be supporting a charity which is doing such great work in protecting these sea animals. The work of The Seahorse Trust extends around the world from surveys to recording seahorse sightings, advising on projects, to campaigning to save seahorses and marine habitat.
More recently, they have been advising against the installation of an oil rig in Poole Bay, right on top of a known seahorse habitat and at the moment are looking at the potentially disastrous dredging of Exmouth docks and the dumping of the waste off Sprey Point in Teignmouth.
So when you’re out and about, make sure you’re having a Seahorse, bottle or pint, we’re helping save more Hoppy’s!
