The Knysna seahorse is only found in a small section of South Africa and is one of only two seahorse species in the world currently listed as endangered. Locals need to act quickly to save the remaining specimens.
On this week's eco@africa, we look for the endangered Knysna seahorse, learn how to turn paper into pearls and see what a team of creative entrepreneurs is doing with fish skins that would otherwise sit around and rot.
Some conservation groups argue if done sustainably the use of snakes, crocodiles and other exotic animals can help protect species. But given monitoring and animal welfare issues, can their use ever be justified?
