Seagrass habitats are in danger. During the ‘Survival of Seagrass’ session, seagrass research scientists will explain what seagrass is, why it is important, and how we can protect it. The research scientists will show how they study the health of seagrass, from the equipment they use in the field to the processing of samples in the lab. Come learn about the threats that seagrasses face, and how these threats impact both the seagrasses and the many marine animals that call seagrass habitats their home.

Learning Points

  1. Why is a healthy seagrass habitat important?
  2. What does seagrass need to be healthy?
  3. How can we study the health of seagrass?
