 Seagrass Habitats
 
Seagrass beds are an exciting and interesting habitat found in many sheltered estuaries and bays around the UK. Seagrasses are the only flowering plant that are able to survive completely submerged in the marine environment. They form huge meadows on the sea bed which are home to many commercially important and charismatic animals including seahorses. Unfortunately these sensitive habitats are vulnerable to disturbance by coastal activities and pollution and many of them are in decline. It’s extremely important that these habitats are protected and that awareness raised about the potential impacts of these vital ecosystems disappearing.
