MONITORING & Restoration

By monitoring seagrass meadows, we can keep an eye on how they’re doing. By underwater gardening, we can actively replant lost seagrass meadows Conserving seagrass demands working together. That’s why we believe strongly in Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals. We aim to create the first ever full scale seagrass restoration project in the UK, doing our best for Goal 14: Life Below Water.
