Blue Carbon Sequestration
Marine Habitat Restoration - Seawilding
Ocean habitats, such as seagrasses, are capable of sequestering carbon at rates of up to four times more than terrestrial forests. No wonder UNEP refer to the ocean as ‘the world’s greatest ally against climate change’.
Seawilding restores seagrass beds and native oyster beds on Scotland’s spectacular Argyll coast, working towards the overarching goals of sequestering carbon, restoring lost biodiversity and creating green jobs. They are one-third of the way to achieving their target of restoring 1M native oysters, while the innovative methods used in their seagrass projects are being adopted by many other coastal communities. We are delighted to support a marine habitat restoration initiative that makes a positive difference to local environment and community, but also has a global impact through the sequestration of blue carbon.
