Project Seagrass

Advancing seagrass conservation through education, influence, research and action  

What's at stake

Communities around the world depend on seagrass meadows for food security and livilihoods. We have already lost 35 percent of the world's seagrass. Those that remain are threatened by the coastal development, eutropication and poor water quality. 

Seagrass Meadows Provide Poverty Alleviation 

Seagrass meadows globally support communities by providing food-security.

Seagrasses Support Livelihoods

Millions of people around the world fish in seagrass meadows and millions more depend on fishes that owe some part of the life cycle to seagrass meadows.  Ensuring that this fishing is sustainable remains a challenge, and finding solutions are better when communities work together.
