We endeavour to respond to enquiries as quickly as possible but we appreciate your patience as we have a small team and a busy workload.

Please see our FAQs to see if we have answered your question below.




Seagrass restoration is just part of what we do to work towards seagrass conservation. Unfortunately, our restoration projects are not a verified carbon offsetting scheme.

While seagrass does absorb carbon, the amount of carbon absorbed can vary depending upon numerous characteristics such as water depth, exposure, sediment type, species planted, and temperature. It’s therefore difficult to say how much carbon 1 square meter of seagrass will absorb.

However, we’re interested in hearing from individuals and businesses that wish to help us restore seagrass for seagrass’ sake; to help bring biodiversity back to our oceans for the vast benefits that nature provides.

Unity is central to who we are and we heavily depend on volunteers for our action programmes.

The summer period is our main fieldwork season where there are opportunities to pick seagrass seeds for our restoration work. We also offer opportunities throughout the year where extra hands are needed to process these seeds. Please sign up to our volunteer database if you would like to get involved with our work. We keep up to date with our volunteers on our dedicated Facebook Group.  All opportunities are posted on there, and we would love to have you on board in the future. Please also keep an eye on our social media pages where we will post any opportunities to get involved.

If you would like to volunteer your time on a more regular basis, we also have our citizen science programme SeagrassSpotter. We urge anyone interested in seagrass to participate in this growing project to help map seagrass on the global stage.

You can find more information about that here or download the SeagrassSpotter app on the App Store or Google Play Store

We do offer internships as part of university students’ placement year degrees. We currently offer three different internships: Communication Intern, Seagrass Nursery Intern and Seagrass Ocean Rescue Intern. For more information and to apply, check out our Careers page

Short-term placements are available over the summer months (July-September). These placements are open to anyone over the age of 18.

If you have any questions about our internship programs, please email:

Occasionally we offer work experience for those under 18 years old. This is subject to staff availability. Please email:

Check out our Careers page where we will post information about any current vacancies. You can also follow us on LinkedIn and other social media platforms where we will post if there are any upcoming job opportunities.

In the meantime, why not sign up for our volunteer database found here

We have a citizen programme called SeagrassSpotter which aims to map seagrass globally. You can download the data from it for free and use it towards your research. Unfortunately, as a small team, we do not have the capacity to help students collect specific data for their thesis

Seagrass meadows are found in the shallow, sheltered areas of our coast and can be found either intertidal (uncovered daily by seawater, as the tide goes in and out) or subtidal (always under the water). Seagrasses prefer sheltered places, such as shallow bays, lagoons, and estuaries (sheltered areas where rivers flow into the sea), where waves are limited and light and nutrient levels are high.

To find out places around the world you can see seagrass, check out our citizen science program SeagrassSpotter to help contribute to mapping the distribution of the worlds seagrass.

One of the biggest issues facing seagrass conservation is simply not knowing where it is! If you’ve found seagrass, upload your sighting to our citizen science programme.

If you’re not sure which species you’ve found, you can use our identify tool to identify the species you’ve found
