Seagrasses are the only flowering plants able to survive in the sea. There are 72 species globally but just four species native to the UK and we are fortunate to have at least three of these in the sheltered waters of Langstone and Chichester harbours.
Havant Climate Alliance are interested in protecting, monitoring, restoring and enhancing the seagrass beds within Havant Borough. Come and hear Dr Tim Ferrero of HIWWT explain how these incredible and threatened plants can help improve water quality, increase biodiversity, stabilise sediments and sequester nutrients and carbon and all on our shore step!
This is an opportunity to hear the science, ask questions and find out what you can do to help protect seagrass in Havant Borough, and all from the comfort of your own home.
Once you have signed up to the meeting you will be sent a Zoom invitation to join the meeting on the day of the event (WEDNESDAY 9th DECEMBER).
