MEADOWS BENEATH THE WAVES

September 5 → 7:15 pm8:15 pm

Orkney Theatre, KGS, Kirkwall

The only true plants in our ocean are seagrasses, with characteristic root systems, leaves, flowers and seeds. They provide a vital habitat for marine life, increasing biodiversity, and locking carbon into the sediment. These ecosystems have such great value that conservation and restoration work is under way globally. Orkney’s pristine meadows are particularly important and the subject of research through the Sjøgrass Project, funded by Highland Park. Prof. Joanne Porter of Heriot-Watt University joins Dr Esther Thomsen and Katy Waring of Project Seagrass to describe their work over the past three years.
