Seagrass meadows are home to endangered seahorses

The seagrass meadows of Posidonia australis (and Zostera) found at Station Beach provides habitat for endangered species. Within the Pittwater Estuary, this includes Hippocampus whitei (White’s seahorse). The White’s seahorse is currently only known to occur in eight estuaries on the NSW Coast, including within the Pittwater estuary, and in the Tweed River (Fisheries Scientific Committee, 2019). A close relative of the White’s seahorse, the Pipefish, is regularly seen off Station Beach.
