Restore seagrass meadows

Restore seagrass meadows

Our coastal seagrass meadows have been destroyed at an abhorrent scale, whether through physical damage during dredging, or other impacts such as pollution. Seagrass meadows can sequester carbon with much higher efficiency (density/speed) than woodlands and can store this for thousands of years. They are also less vulnerable to destruction by wildfire! They are also key to marine biodiversity and coastal protection. Seagrass restoration needs to receive the effort and funding that tree planting does in Scotland, and no trawl, no disturbance zones need to be more strictly enforced to avoid further losses.
