Conch In the Seagrass

20171129-DSC_1787.jpg

A queen conch (Lobatus gigas) is an endangered species, prized for their meat. They feed primarily on algae that grows on seagrass, which helps seagrass thrive. Seagrass is also in decline around the world and is an important habitat for many animals, many of which we humans like to consume. Image made in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, Bahamas.
