About this project

Project Seagrass

Project Seagrass was created in 2013 with the mission of turning cutting-edge research into effective conservation action and education schemes, by collaborating with local communities and other stakeholders. With this aim they have developped an App for iPhone and Android, for anyone in the UK to upload information on seagrass beds they might see along the coast.

As a dedicated team of seagrass scientists, they work to protect seagrass, and through seagrass, they support marine conservation more broadly.

To meet its goals, Project Seagrass is devoted to:

  • Educating the wider community on the presence and importance of seagrass ecosystems, the services they provide and current seagrass management issues.
  • Building the capacity of local stakeholders in the use of standardised scientific methodologies.
  • Promoting and assisting with long-term monitoring of seagrass condition.
  • Assisting with scientific research and supporting conservation measures that help facilitate the long-term resilience of seagrass ecosystems.

How can you contribute?

Project Seagrass

Seagrass Project has developped an App for iPhone and Android, for anyone to upload information on seagrass beds they might see along the coast or while diving.

Seagrass Spotter (https://seagrassspotter.org) seeks to expand the number of people studying seagrass from a handful of scientists to hundreds and potentially thousands of ‘citizen scientists.’ As part of efforts to build a sustainable monitoring network, and by leveraging the enthusiasm of everyone from fishers to SCUBA divers to people on vacations at the beach, a more comprehensive picture of seagrass meadows around the globe will be created. This in turn will inspire new scientific research and practical conservation measures that can help protect ocean habitats.  

Working together with citizen scientists all over the world, we’ll accomplish big things for seagrass and other vulnerable marine species, but only with your help.
