    Seagrass accounts for 10 per cent of the ocean’s capacity to store carbon despite occupying only 0.2 per cent of the sea floor, and it can capture carbon from the atmosphere up to 35 times faster than tropical rainforests.

    Carbon sequestration on our doorstep.

    The race to decarbonisation is going to dominate geopolitics for the next few decades.

    We're sitting on a potential carbon capture goldmine.

    Amazing opportunity to diversify our economy

    I have only recently become aware of the phrase “Blue carbon”. We focus our educational efforts on rainforests which are remote to us and something hard to influence. We should all be better aware of the importance of marine carbon in our waters. Sequestering carbon is not something to leave to other counties where we can do better ourselves.

    When considering the economic success of industries or projects we often ignore externalities such as climate change. It is interesting that the carbon released from damaged seabeds is not included in the sources of carbon diagram. I think it ought to be calculated and included.
