Project Seagrass

Advancing seagrass conservation through education, influence, research and action  

OVER 35% OF OUR SEAGRASS, GONE!

Since 1980, we've lost over 35% of our seagrass meadows. That equates to about 1.5% per year, or 2 football fields each hour.


This rate of loss is equal to that of coral reefs and rainforests, yet seagrass receives no attention and we're here to change that!

Project Seagrass is committed to the conservation of seagrass ecosystems and ensuring that the benefits they provide communities are sustained now and for the future.

Through education, influence, research and action, we can save seagrass!

 
 

FLAGSHIP SPECIES

Seagrasses are flagship species for environmental issues. Because they respond rapidly to environmental change, they provide insights into overfishing and destructive fishing practices, pollution and water quality, and much more. Learn about these iconic habitats, the threats they face, and how you can help us to protect them.
