What would you know?

You never know where your information might get you. I recently took a picture of a seahorse I spotted during a leisure dive at Pulau Aur and posted it on my personal album. I forwarded the address to a few friends I thought might be interested in looking at the pix and got a reply from a friend who happens to be a journalist for Malaysia's New Straits Times. She was in contact with a seahorse researcher, Choo Chee Kuang from KUSTEM. He contacted me and because I'd taken note of the habitat in which the seahorse was spotted i.e. substrate, depth, coral etc, I was able to furnish him with what little information I had.
