ARC Linkage Grant Success for Seed-based Restoration Project
BMT Oceanica is partnered with University of Western Australia, Curtin University Virginia Institute of Marine Science, the Rottnest Island Authority and Shark Bay Resources in an ARC Linkage funded project that aims to develop methods for seed-based restoration of seagrass meadows. Such methods are urgently needed to restore the structure and function of seagrass ecosystems following human impacts.
Over 20 years, BMT Oceanica has undertaken or supported a number of seagrass rehabilitation projects, and this most recent grant allows us to continue this cutting-edge work. We acknowledge Cockburn Cement for their continuing support and contribution of funding for this important work.
