“Restoring resilience in coastal seagrass habitat is vital for coastal ecosystems, our community and the reef.”
The Whitsundays Seagrass Restoration Project has establised a new seagrass nursery here at Coral Sea Marina, and is working with the community to trial the production, dispersal and successful enhancement of seagrass to support increased resilience of local seagrass meadows.
Our seagrass meadows need your help – volunteer to participate in flower collection or seed spreading activities
Seagrass meadows are a vital fish habitat and crucial to the marine ecosystem and they are currently at risk from both natural and artificial influences. You can help join by joining us!
