    Seahorses making love is an amazing behaviour to have the privilege to watch. Kenna Eco Diving volunteers were so lucky to be in the right place at the right time! Now we are monitoring several pregnant males and waiting to see the first baby seahorse.

    The adults are very hard to spot, with their amazing camouflage. Our volunteer divers need to have great buoyancy skills and keen eyesight. It´s challenging but great fun, and really improves divers´ skills. Imagine how hard it will be to spot a baby, out of the small percentage that survive long enough to grow!
