The Secret Lives of Seahorses Next up in Monterey

New exhibit opens at Monterey Bay Aquarium

A special seahorse exhibit will open at the Monterey Bay Aquarium  this spring.
The exhibit, "The Secret Lives of Seahorses," will feature more  than 15 species of seahorses, sea dragons, pipehorses and pipefish, aquarium  officials said.

The purpose of the exhibit, which opens April 6, is to highlight  the various habitats in which seahorses live, and share stories about the  threats they face in the wild.

"Seahorses are wonderful ambassadors for ocean conservation  because they live in the most endangered habitats in the world -- coral  reefs, sea grass beds and mangrove forests," said Ava Ferguson, the exhibit's  senior developer.
