Seahorse Conservation Laboratory Tours

Explore the world of seahorses at Mote Aquarium. Get a hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience with an icon of the sea and learn how we breed and conserve these vulnerable animals. Along the way we will guide you through the biology of the syngnathid family (seahorses and their kin), their behaviors, diversity, reproduction and more. You will help feed some of our seahorses and enjoy a guided visit to all of our syngnathid exhibits.
