Project Seagrass

Project Seagrass is taking place in the Solent 18th – 21st March. Working with Dr Richard Unswroth, Associate Professor in marine ecology at Swansea University, where he uses field, desk based and aquaria research to solve real world problems in seagrass conservation and restoration. Richard’s expertise lie in the ecological structuring processes of seagrass meadows which has led to his leading role in seagrass restoration across the UK having led the UKs first major seagrass restoration project over in West Wales. The operation matched by YFS involves moving seagrass planting equipment from a loading point near Ryde and offloading the equipment on the beach at Priory Bay and again at Thorness Bay.
