A new research project has just commenced in Papua New Guinea that is investigating seahorse diversity and distribution throughout the waters of PNG. This project is specially examining the species of seahorses that are found in PNG waters as there has been no research conducted on the species diversity and their distribution.

The project is being conducted by the Motupore Island Research Centre (MIRC) and they are now seeking assistance from scuba divers. MIRC is seeking assistance from divers that have visited Papua New Guinea in the past or plan to in the near future. MIRC requests any sighting information of seahorses and in particular any photos that divers have taken of seahorses in Papua New Guinea waters. If you have any information or photos that can be used please contact Geua Ganiga (ganigagg@upng.ac.pg).

For further information on the project I have saved a short article here:
