We work in partnership with many organisations and people from all over the world and it is this unique partnership that allows us to benefit from the natural world so well.[/p] [p]Seahorses are a very unique fish species that occupy the coastal areas of most of the world and it is these very areas that are most under threat, being vulnerable to human and natural interference they suffer badly and by working together we can make a difference to their future and the future of these fragile eco-systems.[/p] [lt]h1[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]British Seahorses[/span][/b][lt]/h1[gt] [p]There are two species around British Coastline, the Spiny Seahorse (Hippocampus Guttulatus and the Short Snouted Seahorse (Hippocampus Hippocampus).[lt]br /[gt] Both British Seahorses can be found from the Shetland Isles down the west coast of the UK (and all around Ireland) and along the south coast of England; we also have sightings of Seahorses on the east coast and a few years ago they were found in the North Sea.[/p] [p][url=http://www.theseahorsetrust.org/seahorse-facts.aspx]Read more Seahorse Facts here! [/url][/p] [lt]h1[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]Meet the team![/span][/b][lt]/h1[gt][p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]Ada, Kurt & Nik will swim a collective distance of 10 km! [/span][/b][/p][lt]h1[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]Ada Zanditon[/span][/b][lt]/h1[gt][p][b] [/b]Ada is a eco luxury fashion designer, passionate about elegant sculptural womenswear inspired by the most beautiful creatures that exist - her Spring Summer 2012 collection 'Poseisus' was inspired by Seahorses after the designer learnt that there are even Seahorses living in the river Thames! [/p] [p]Ada says: [b] [/b][/p] [p]"Seahorses are elegant, sculptural and totally unique which why I find them so inspiring. There are so many forms of life in the ocean and on this planet – yet that we know of – Seahorses are the only species where the boys have the babies! They are fragile, beautiful and original and not only have they inspired my collection, but their beauty has recently graced the catwalks of Chanel, Versace, Holly Fulton and many more besides!”[/p] [lt]h1[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]Kurt Williams[/span][/b][lt]/h1[gt] [p]Kurt is a part of the genius that is Junky Styling, he is also a devoted Yogi, London marathon runner and an incredible cook![/p][p]Kurt says: [/p][p][/p][p]"Dressed as a Seahorse I was one of the official judges at the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade in Coney Island New York!"[/p][lt]h1[gt][span=text-decoration: underline;]Nik Thakkar [/span][lt]/h1[gt] [p]Nik is a creative brand consultant and pop culture expert who works with some of the biggest names in fashion and music.

He wasn't captain of his school swimming team, but according to the tumblr community, he looks good in a pair of swim trunks. [/p] [p][/p] [p]Nik says:[/p] [p][/p] [p]"I am totally fascinated with mythical creatures (dragons, vampires etc.), and seahorses are the closest thing we still have to that. They represent the old world magic that has inspired so many amazing stories and creative ideas in fashion and pop culture.  So many other magical creatures are already extinct and it is really sad to see seahorses in danger. I'm really proud to be supporting the cause to raise funds to protect them and to be part of the fight to keep our world inspired and creative."[/p] [p]Finally, thanks for visiting our page.
