🌱So it turns out seagrass is pretty important? 🌱

Scientists from Project Seagrass & Swansea University  have published an exciting review this week, here are some of the findings: 👇

🐠 ‘Global net recovery of seagrass has never been more urgent given the major ecological role it has in helping mitigate climate change & the biodiversity crisis’

🐟 “Conserving & restoring seagrass meadows contributes to 16 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”

🐡 ‘The role of seagrass in supporting the planet and the people needs to be better recognised…

🐬 The SDGs could be a way to help frame seagrass restoration in a more engaging way - by connecting to the daily lives & actions of people’
