Project Seagrass

Project Seagrass is an environmental charity devoted to the conservation of global seagrass ecosystems through research, community and action. Seagrasses are marine plants that live in shallow, sheltered areas around our coast. They provide a variety of essential ecosystems, including storing carbon, producing oxygen, stabilising our coastlines, improving the water quality and clarity of our oceans, and increasing ocean biodiversity. However, in the UK we have lost more than 90% of our seagrass in the last century with global estimates suggesting we lose a football fields worth every 30 minutes. Project Seagrass seeks to lead societal change to enable the recognition, recovery and resilience of seagrass ecosystems globally.
