3. On the 'projects' page, tap 'iSeahorse.' This will load a list of seahorse species.

Don't forget to add a photo (if you have one) by tapping the camera icon in the top right hand corner of the page. Tap 'Save' when you're done.

5. If you don't know the species and don't want to guess, click the 'Add observation' button at the top of the list. In the observation form, just write 'seahorse' as the species name and enter the rest of your data. Again, remember to add your photo if you have one. Tap 'Save' when you're done.

6. Tap the 'Observations' button. A list of all your current observations will appear. Tap the 'Sync observations' button. 

That's it!
