The Seahorseman

4 x 25' or 1 x 60'

The Seahorseman is a four part series which tells the story of the ancient seahorse, its fight for survival and one man's dream to save it.

Seahorses seem like magical, mystical creatures. They are one of the most enticing sea animals and they are considered a great symbol of love because once they find a mate, they stay together for life. From its daily morning mating dance to the unique way in which the male actually gives birth, the seahorse has long been heralded in myth and legend as a wondrous creature of the sea.

However, this fascination with the seahorse as a myth and legend may ironically be its undoing. This documentary follows one marine biologist on his incredible journey as he tires to save the seahorse from extinction.
