Mote Marine Aquarium now offers tours of its Seahorse Conservation Laboratory.
The tours reveal the threats seahorses face in the wild and information about how Mote breeds them for conservation.
“Not only is it important to raise seahorses, but educating people about them is also key,” said Shawn Garner, Seahorse Conservation Laboratory supervisor, in a prepared statement. “Only when you learn about seahorses can you fully comprehend their beauty, their uniqueness in the animal world and why we need to protect them.”
Tours begin at 11 a.m. most Thursdays and last about 45 minutes. Cost is $20 per person. Lab tour prices do not include general admission to Mote Aquarium, which is $17 for adults; $16 for ages 65 and up; $12 for children ages 4 to 12; and free for children 3 and younger.
