Rare Seahorse Filmed for the First Time

The rare West African seahorse has been filmed in the wild for possibly the first time. Researchers hope to learn more about the species and help create a more sustainable trade in the animal. It’s estimated that around 150 million seahorses are sold annually for traditional medicine worldwide.
