The Ocean Rescue Project reports that while seagrass makes up only 0.2% of the ocean, it actually stores a whopping 10% of the carbon — making it ideal for helping fight climate change.

Who knew?

Much of the UK’s seagrass has been destroyed by boat anchors, pollution, and oil spills, so it’s necessary for organizations like the ORP to intervene, as Lead Biologist Richard Unsworth states in the One Green Planet report:

“We face a growing climate emergency and a biodiversity emergency, and we have to make rapid steps to fight those. It’s hard for people to understand how screwed the ocean is. It’s out of sight and out of mind. The environment here has got stuck in an anoxic, algae-rich, muddy state. You have to intervene.”

With 1 million seeds due to be planted, this restoration project is sure to inject some life into the UK’s seas and help to capture tons of carbon from the atmosphere.
