Sea Grass features on Off Track

Front lawn to the ocean, seagrass has long been known to play an essential role in the marine ecosystem. It acts as a nursery for fish species, food for turtles and dugongs, and is a natural mesh that holds the coastline together, preventing erosion.
Recently, scientists have begun to understand the plant’s unique capacity to sequester carbon; seagrass meadows capture and store carbon at a rate forty times faster than a tropical rainforest—and they can store that carbon for thousands of years.
