iSeahorse Trends: Surveying wild seahorse landings
How do I get involved?
- Get in touch! Tell us a little bit about yourself — where you’re based, your professional background, where and how often you would like to do landings surveys.
- Download the iSeahorse Landings Toolkit. The toolkit has everything you need to get started, including important technical information about choosing a survey site, surveying seahorse populations, identifying individual species, measuring for survey “effort,” and recording your data.
- Enter your data into the Landings site and survey datasheets. (They're also included in Appendix A and B of the toolkit.)
- Submit your data to iSeahorse via this spreadsheet [link coming soon]. We will be launching a web tool and smartphone app to make uploading your seahorse landings data as easy as possible, but for now you’ll need to submit your completed datasheets to [email protected].
IMPORTANT: To ensure data accuracy, please make sure to read through all of the toolkit components before you start any landings surveys. Also note that the toolkit and supporting material are updated and expanded on a regular basis, so please check back for new versions, and contact us with any suggestions for improvement. We want to hear from you!
