Seahorses have hotels in Australia!

Seahorses rely on their habitat to camouflage themselves from predators, as a holdfast to prevent being washed away and as a source of food, predating on the micro-crustaceans that live on the habitats. Artificial habitats, not much more than a chicken wire cage, are being introduced as “seahorse hotel” in Australia and they are leading to a population resurgence of Australia’s endangered white seahorse. Not quite the “hotel” we imagine but we’ll take it!
