Resowing the seagrass beds is a fabulous idea as long as they are using appropriate native species and aren't creating a pollution problem with the netting bags. Good news story!

Considering how much of our food supplies are tied to the health of the oceans, it is good to hear that people are paying attention and finding solutions like this.

Please plant these meadows. We need to give the oceans as much help as possible.

I can't believe the apathy of the world when it comes to the decimation of our planet. The little bit that's allowed to help is too small. All governments of the world are complicit in killing this planet. Insane.

Whatever it works... I love to see sea grass when I snorkel and/or dive.
