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 are 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!
