On December 13, Bloom Natural Health will host SEAESCAPE, a benefit event supporting the Seahorse Hawaii Foundation‘s (501 (c) 3) efforts to raise awareness and educate people of the impending seahorse extinction and its direct relationship to the  health of our coral reefs and oceans.  The event will support the Foundation’s mission to maintain a living gene bank of all 36 species of seahorses for breeding, display, and release back to their protected natural habitat.

Without any support, seahorses will become completely extinct, signaling the collapse of the ocean’s delicate ecosystem.  Living coral reefs are expected to be a thing of the past in the next 50 years.  To make matters worse, seahorses are being harvested by collectors that sell them for profit both dead and alive (for tonics) – without any thought to the consequences.

SEAESCAPE attendees will have the opportunity to adopt a pair of seahorses, which the Seahorse Hawaii Foundation will release into marine protected reserves in Tavarua, Fiji (Cloudbreak reef) and Tonga in May 2014.  The release will be broadcasted in coordination with the Fiji Volcom Pro World Surf Tour.  This program is a part of the Foundation’s efforts to revive areas of the natural reefs that have already been damaged and native species have been removed by collectors.

The SEAESCAPE event will also feature the first ever showcase of Sarah Lee’s compelling underwater photo art from around the underwater world including Fiji, Hawaii, and California.  Raffle items, live music, gourmet food, and specialty cocktails will be provided.
