This rare species can grow to be 18 inches long. It gets its name from its seaweed-like appearance. Weedy sea dragons are native to southern Australia. Due to climate change and pollution, some have been moved to aquariums for protection.

Jennifer Nero Moffatt is a senior director at Birch. “This is a momentous event,” she says. “We have spent over 25 years working with these animals and love that we have made the next steps to conserve this delicate species.”
