As part of our partnership with the Marine Conservation Society, we have had the pleasure of working with Dr Jean-Luc Solandt on our mission to regenerate and protect a huge area of seagrass off the coast of Portland Harbour.
Jean-Luc has over 15 years of experience working in marine protected areas on rewarding and exciting projects. This includes the Marine Conservation Society’s seagrass regeneration project that we support with our ‘1% for the ocean’ initiative.
Despite covering only a small percentage of our seas, seagrass is the most important marine habitat in the fight against climate change. It is extremely effective at capturing carbon, sequestering roughly 10% of carbon that is buried in ocean sediment each year, while also helping to support the fish population.
