DragonSearch is a collaborative research project that seeks to expand understanding of wild seadragon populations through meaningful community involvement. Seadragons are icons for marine biodiversity, but there are still many knowledge gaps for their conservation. DragonSearch will use data from underwater imagery to track these unique fish across their distribution for a decade, providing a window into their lives as well as the health of their habitats.
