In addition, industrial fishing anticipates their desrtruction since they are often caught accidentally in the nets of trawlers. The destruction of their natural habitats (coral reefs, sea grass beds, magroves) contributes to their gradual depletion. Today, seahroses are endangered species.
Coral Reefs are among the most incredible living creatures alive. They develop over dozens of kilometers in the ocean. The coral ecosystem has the highest biodiversity in the marine ecosystem with 93,000 species which represent 5% of the total number of the total number of species. Very sensitive to pollution and brutally taken from their natural habitat for trade, they are disappearing slowly: This is a big issue since its is endangering all other species that lives in the unique and exceptional environment they create.
