Shocker the Help the Kelp Seahorse

Shocker the Help the Kelp Seahorse

Meet Shocker the seahorse. This little dude is a celebration of the reappearance of seahorses to my local beaches. There have been recent sightings of seahorses in the sea off Lancing and Shoreham beaches and it is such a joy to know they are making a comeback. 

For them to thrive in our waters they need a safe and flourishing habitat so £10 from the sale of this picture will be going to Sussex Seabed Restoration Project, a Lancing based community project doing incredible work to restore kelp in our seas. 

Shocker the seahorse is made from trash collected on Sussex beach cleans including detonation shock cabling which, over the last year, has been appearing across Sussex beaches from Hastings to Chichester. It's used to carry the shock away from explosion sites and has washed in all the way from seabed explosive work in America. I've also used sweet and lollipop wrappers, balloons, a foam ball, a fishing bead, nylon cord, plastic coated cord, a shotgun cartridge, plastic straws, plastic tape, and some unidentified mystery plastics.
