(Sharjah) – The Sharjah Aquarium celebrated World Oceans Day with a number of activities under its social responsibility initiative “Because We Care,” now running for the sixth consecutive year. The department released a number of seahorses into their natural habitat as an initiative to preserve the biodiversity of the U.A.E.’s maritime environment.
The Sharjah Aquarium Team, in collaboration with marine biologists from the Emirates Marinelife Photography Group, completed a successful breeding experiment by releasing young seahorses into their natural habitat adjacent to Sharjah Aquarium, making the aquarium a more diverse habitat suitable for both research and leisure at the same time.
The breeding and release of aquatic species comes in the context of Sharjah Aquarium’s efforts to protect ocean fauna, which consisted thus far of breeding seahorses and Amphiprioninae, a successful process that is still ongoing, supported by the experience and knowledge acquired by Sharjah’s biologists during their experimental research.
Sharjah Aquarium is home to a variety of local marine organisms, and it is always supplied with species collected from the various marine environments in the emirate.
