Reviving Seagrass with New Technique for Climate-Resilient Oceans

Ecologists from the University of Groningen are pioneering innovative techniques to revive seagrass meadows, which are crucial for marine ecosystems. Using a modified caulking gun, researchers inject a mix of mud and seagrass seeds into sediment to enhance growth. Additionally, genomic research is identifying climate-resilient seagrass varieties to ensure compatibility and success in restoration projects. These efforts have led to significant successes, particularly in the Dutch Wadden Sea, with the potential for global application.
