CSI Seagrass Project
Living Coasts is a partner in the pioneering Community Seagrass Initiative which will cover the 191 mile stretch of coastline from Looe in Cornwall, to Weymouth in Dorset.
The citizen based project will provide opportunities for the general public to engage with their coastal areas and be a part of an exciting project to benefit the coastal communities for years to come.
Everyone from school children, sailors, canoeists, divers, kayakers and even internet users will be encouraged to get involved and help collect vital data to aid the mapping and surveying of seagrass meadows along the south coast.
Conservation of the seagrass habitat is extremely important to help maintain biodiversity in our seas. Seagrass provides a valuable nursery ground for many fish species: it is home to enigmatic creatures such as the seahorse and it helps provide a stable environment in which to live.
