Since 2011, we have been involved in seed-based restoration of Seagrass in the Dutch Wadden Sea.
Seagrass beds are among the most rapid disappearing ecosystems in the world with a yearly loss rate of about 7%. To halt and revert these losses, there are many attempts to restore these underwater meadows all across the globe. Seagrass beds promote biodiversity and contribute to coastal protection by wave attenuation and formation of anti-erosional mats. We are currently investigating the potential for seagrass restoration in the Dutch Wadden Sea and Delta (Grevelingen).
