Syngnathidae is a family of bony fishes that includes seahorses, seadragons, pipefish, and pipehorses. These small, charismatic creatures are important symbols of healthy ocean ecosystems, and they are disappearing. Each year, millions are swept up in trawl nets as bycatch, and millions more are traded illegally for use in traditional medicine and as dried curiosities in souvenir shops. Development, pollution, agricultural fertilizer runoff, and ocean warming driven by the climate crisis are all making life untenable for those that evade capture. By protecting our marine waters, and supporting the work of organizations like Project Seahorse, The Seahorse Trust, and the IUCN SSC Seahorse, Pipefish, and Seadragon Specialist Group, we can preserve these incredible ocean jewels, and the ecosystems they call home, for generations to come.
- Zoe Keller
A Woodstock, New York native, Zoe Keller's creative upbringing in the rural Catskills shaped her future as an artist and amateur naturalist. After graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Keller made homes and studios in Minneapolis, Philadelphia, on the rocky Maine coast, in West Michigan's farm country, Eastern Oregon's Wallowa Mountains, and in Portland, Oregon, where she currently resides. Keller uses graphite and Procreate to create large-scale, meticulously rendered visual narratives. Placing a special focus on at-risk species and wildlands, Keller weaves drawings that explore the interconnectedness of fragile, vanishing ecosystems. By highlighting the biodiversity at risk in the Anthropocene her work aims to inspire reverence for the natural world and action to defend what we have left.d
