The Story Behind the Seahorse Logo
When the original Facebook Page started in 2012, Michelle was searching for something that would represent the Stomachless Community. During her search of Stomachless creatures she came across the Seahorse. Symbolically Seahorses point to the importance of friendliness.

She loved how this represented the intention behind what has now evolved into an amazing community.
