Solent Seagrass Restoration Progresses

Scuba divers have collected more than half a million seeds from healthy seagrass meadows around Osborne Bay, Yarmouth and Bouldnor in the Solent for replanting in parts of the Solent where seagrass has been lost or degraded.

In addition to seagrass restoration, volunteers for ReMEDIES and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust are observing recreational activities in the Solent during August and September. This will give insight into the pressures that seagrass beds are under from shore- and water-based leisure activities such as boating.
