Seahorses at risk from disturbance in Studland Bay


Naturalist Chris Packham presents a hard hitting personal take on what's going wrong - and sometimes right - with our marine wildlife and its conservation.

Seahorses are protected by the law yet they are under threat in some coastal waters.

Chris Packham visits Studland Bay in Dorset and looks at the Spiny Seahorse that some campaigners believe is being adversely affected by human activities including anchoring and mooring disturbance.
