Our planet’s seagrasses are diminishing rapidly, with some studies estimating that around 92% of those surrounding the UK have disappeared over the last couple of centuries or so.
Thankfully there are amazing organisations working hard to restore and protect them. The Ocean Conservation Trust is one of them, and we’re proud to say that we support the work they do with regular donations.
Quick sidebar: In 2021 we partnered with three climate charities: Ocean Conservation Trust, Rainforest Foundation UK (RFUK), and Cumbria Wildlife – for healthier oceans, healthier forests, and healthier bogs, to protect our planet and people. Since then, we’ve donated 1p (1.3c) for every ticket sold through our platform to these important (amazing, brilliant, wonderful 💚) causes.
Back to our planet’s seagrasses – what are they, and why do we need them? Turns out, they’re pretty wonderful ocean-dwelling meadows with a plethora of planet-friendly super powers.
