As a major European settlement, being close to the Zambezi River crossing over to Southern Rhodesia, the town was made the capital of Northern Rhodesia in 1911.As the capital, it enjoyed excellent facilities far superior to anything elsewhere in the country, as can be seen from the surviving Edwardian buildings that line the city’s main road.Although data is insufficient to measure the impact their harvest for these purposes has on overall populations, millions of seahorses are collected each year and several countries have opted out of international trade recommendations that could regulate their import and export and help protect wild populations.IUCN lists eleven species of seahorses as Vulnerable, and one, the Knysna or cape seahorse native to South Africa, as Endangered. Aimed at preschool viewers (ages three to five), the goal of the series is to inspire children to explore science, engineering, and math in the world around them. Syngnathids are affected by threats to their habitats around the world.Preserving and protecting the ecosystems that are home to the beautiful and intriguing syngnathid family of marine animals will improve their populations and those of other animals in their habitats and ensure they continue to captivate generations to come.
The capital was moved to Lusaka in 1935 and the bustling city has become a quiet town, but still retaining a special charm.
Leafy and weedy seadragons have been listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List since 2006.
Like most coral reef inhabitants, seadragons are at risk because of habitat destruction due to human development, pollution, and agricultural fertilizer run-off.
