Seagrass absorbs carbon 35 faster than rain forests do.

Nature is one of the world’s most cutting-edge climate technologies. Many of the UK’s natural habitats are hugely effective natural carbon sinks. For example, seagrass can absorb carbon 35 times faster than tropical rainforests, but we’re not taking enough care of this precious resource and we’ve lost up to 92% of our seagrass meadows in the last century.

That’s why we have launched the Force for Nature campaign, in partnership with Sky Zero, aiming to protect and restore precious UK habitats. In 2020, we worked with Sky Zero to plant over one million seeds and create the UK’s first restored seagrass meadow off the coast of Wales. Now Sky Zero has committed to planting an additional one million seagrass seeds with us in the South of England, as part of an ambitious project to restore vital seascapes in the UK.
