Sea grass and whales

Now is the ideal time with Brexit just over for us to take control of ALL our seabeds.  To allow the seagrass to grow and absorb the vaste quantities of carbon it does.  We do not have much land but we have a lot of sea we can control for our planets benefit.

Whales are also responsible for massive quantities of carbon absorption.
If there is anything we can do to encourage and protect them it would be of significant benefit.

Why the contribution is important

It would greatly increase the absorption of carbon of our sea and coast.

    Yes very wise to care for and increase our sea grass beds they are of tremendous value as carbon sinks and provide food and shelter for many species including effective nursery provision for small creatures including seahorses, they are also an invaluable source of nourishment for our overwintering Brent Geese who rely on them for food.

    Totally agree, I was listening to a Radio 4 podcast about the value of seagrass as a 'blue carbon sink' as well as regeneration of marine environments.
    This could be a new industry for Jersey of carbon offsetting.

    I agree completely, more projects to help the growth of seagrass should would be fantastic

    Can you provide any links/information regarding the extent and state of sea grass in Jersey?

    Support the 'Emerald J' marine park in Jersey's territorial waters, proposed by the Blue Marine Foundation
