The UK’s biggest seagrass restoration projects is to take place off the coast of Wales.
Five million seagrass seeds are to be planted off the Llŷn Peninsula in Gwynedd and Anglesey, with the aim of creating 10 hectares (25 acres) of seagrass meadow by the end of 2026.
The Seagrass Ocean Rescue project is inviting communities to get involved.
It said a single hectare of seagrass meadow could harbour up to 80,000 fish and 100 million invertebrates.
The Welsh government has recognised protecting and restoring seagrass meadows in Wales as a priority.
Its aims include showing the benefits that community-engaged conversation can bring and reconnect people with the sea and coast on their doorstep.
