Project Seagrass is a global facing environmental charity devoted to the conservation of seagrass ecosystems through research, community and action.

Our vision is “A world in which seagrass meadows are thriving, abundant and well managed for people and planet”

Our mission is to lead societal change to enable the recognition, recovery and resilience of seagrass ecosystems globally; that provide biodiversity, equitable and sustainable livelihoods, and planetary life support.

The charity depends on individual and corporate donations, grants, contracts, and contributions from charitable trusts and foundations. 

Project Seagrass is a Charitable Incorporated Organization (CIO), incorporated and registered as a charity on 24 July 2015 in England and Wales, and 17 August 2016 in Scotland. 


Our four key aims are:

  • To engage and educate the wider community on the presence and importance of seagrass ecosystems, the services they provide and current seagrass management issues.
  • To support local stakeholders in the use of standardised scientific methods.
  • To promote and assist with long-term monitoring of seagrass condition.
  • To assist with scientific research and conservation measures that help facilitate the long-term resilience of seagrass ecosystems.

Around 20 people are employed by the charity to deliver our project, engagement, advocacy and fundraising activities. The team is supported by a group of dedicated volunteers, who support delivery and fundraising, based on their own experience and skills.
