SAVING THE WORLD'S SEAGRASS

For people, planet and biodiversity

WHAT IS SEAGRASS?

Seagrasses are flowering plants that live in the shallow, sheltered areas of our coast. These sensitive plants are different from seaweed and grow bright green leaves forming dense underwater meadows. These meadows are full of life, supporting thousands of marine species, producing oxygen, storing carbon, stabilising our coastlines and keeping our ocean clean and clear. Yet, they are globally threatened and are facing significant loss around the world.

URGENT NEED TO SAVE SEAGRASS

Since the late 19th century, it is estimated that one third of our worlds seagrass meadows have disappeared. It’s vital we save what we have left and restore what we have lost.

OUR SOLUTION

Saving seagrass means saving our seas. We need to protect and restore seagrass whilst supporting the continuation of sustainable
human activities that occur amongst or depend directly upon seagrass ecosystems. We need to do this now, as a connected global community, using and sharing knowledge and expertise, recognising, and espousing the vast body of largely untapped local ecological knowledge and empowering action from the local to international scale.

COMMITTED TO SECURING A FUTURE FOR SEAGRASS

Project Seagrass is a global facing marine conservation organisation securing a future for seagrass. Through community, research and action we will reach a world in which seagrass meadows are thriving, abundant and well managed for people and planet.
