When it was approached to create an advertising campaign for the

Earthwatch Institute, an environmental charity, it decided to focus on

one of the species that the organisation aims to protect -

seahorses.



It turns out that an MBA designer, Andy Watts, was a member of the indie

band, The Seahorses, who had a few hits a couple of years ago.



When Watts discovered that seahorses had become extinct in the UK, he

charitably volunteered to compose the soundtrack for the ads.
