Port River seagrass is now literally ‘on the map’ of the international seagrass site, Seagrass Spotter
Seagrass Spotter is the conservation and education tool of the UK based Project Seagrass
‘that could lead to new discoveries about one of the ocean’s most under-appreciated habitats – seagrass.
With SeagrassSpotter, ocean enthusiasts around the world can become citizen scientists who contribute to marine conservation with just a few taps of their phone. We’ve made some important scientific breakthroughs with seagrass in recent years, but they remain incredibly threatened and are still under-appreciated globally’.
Steve Papp, a member of Estuary Care Foundation’s seagrass monitoring team, posted photos of Port River seagrass (Zostera) as part of a global seagrass Bioblitz conducted by Project Seagrass in July and August.
