What we offer

We categorise our seagrass services into Four broad thematic areas: Research, Train, Engage and Educate. In all of our work, we maintain our overarching commitment to raise awareness and knowledge of Seagrass ecosystems

Our Mission

Raise awareness on the condition and trend of nearshore seagrass ecosystems, provide an early warning of major coastal environment changes and to protect the valuable seagrass meadows along our coasts

 Seagrass-Watch monitoring efforts are vital to assist with tracking global patterns in seagrass health, and assess the human impacts which have the potential to destroy or degrade these coastal ecosystems and decrease their yield of natural resources. Responsive management based on adequate information will help to prevent any further significant areas and species being lost. To protect the valuable seagrass meadows along our coasts, everyone must work together.
