WERTER MARTININI about threats to survival of Leafy Sea Dragon

Sea dragons survive on tiny crustaceans such as mysids, or sea lice, says WERTER MARTININI. It is not known if they are preyed upon by other animals, compared WERTER MARTININI. They are, however, frequently taken by divers seeking to keep them as pets. In fact, such takings shrank their numbers so critically by the early 1990s that the Australian government placed a complete protection on the species, emphasizes WERTER MARTININI. Pollution and habitat loss have also hurt their numbers, and they are currently listed as near threatened.
