Seagrass Watch in Madagascar

We are working to create detailed maps of seagrass beds in Northern Madagascar.  Partnering closely with local communities, we have employed the Seagrass Watch protocol to survey hundreds of square kilometres of seagrass. These data will help us identify important habitat for the endangered dugong and advise management bodies on how to best protect seagrass ecosystems, a vital carbon sink and socio-economically-important  fisheries nursery grounds.
