🤔 Did you know seagrass🌱 is one of the worlds most rapidly declining ecosystems?? ⠀ ⠀ A soccer ⚽️ field worth of seagrass disappears every 30 mins due to things such as coastal development and pollution 😲 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

🤔 Did you know boat use is one of the major threats to seagrass🌱?⠀ ⠀ Whether its anchoring in seagrass meadows, propeller scars from being in water that is too shallow to actual boat🚤 groundings- all these are avoidable threats that face seagrass. These activities rip up seagrass roots and destabalise the ecosystem, becoming major threats as small scars can become like major roads through the meadow with continued use.⠀ ⠀ Restoration of these can take up to 1️⃣0️⃣ years, as once seagrass is uprooted it can lead to erosion of the sand banks it grows in- Imagine all the work that goes into planting a flower🌼 bed except underwater! ⠀ ⠀ Through greater community outreach, and boater education these are some of the threats that can be easily managed! ⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

The low tide🌊 brings out a whole different perspective👁️ of Roebuck Bay. ⠀ ⠀ The seagrass meadows of our Bay are normally covered but because of the HUGE tides we have here we get to see them in all their glory - But only on the lowest⬇️ of low tides ⠀ Does this look like a Forrest to anyone? ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

🤔 Did you know just like plants on land, Seagrass 🌱is an important sediment stabiliser? ⠀ ⠀ Because Seagrass has roots (unlike seaweed) it is able to help seabeds retain their structure in the moving tides 🌊helping to create a constant habitat for different sea creatures, big or small! ⠀ ⠀ It constantly is building and securing sediment which can buffer the coast from erosion, storms and flooding.⠀ ⠀ This is one of seagrass' unique strengths! 💪⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

Happy World Seagrass Day! 🌱⁣ ⁣ Seagrass meadows are often overlooked, but mighty ecosystems. Sadly, almost a third of the world's coverage of seagrass has already been lost. 😥 ⁣ ⁣ Click on link in bio to learn more about these blue carbon powerhouses and what you can do to help preserve them. ⁣ ⁣ You can also find more information about seagrass at @projectseagrass @seagrasswatch and @theoceanfoundation⁣ ⁣ 🎥: @aquawork1960⁣ ⁣⁣ #seagrass #worldseagrassday #seagrassawarenessmonth #seagrassbeds #SeagrassLove #seagrassmanagement #marinenursery #bluecarbon #carbonsequestration #carbonsinks #seagrasswatch #climatechange   #TeamSeagrass #seachange #protectwhatyoulove #climatechange #costalecosystems #costalresourcemanagement #ecosystems #marineecosystems #sustinability #fisheries #coastalambassador #coastalawareness #oceancare #loveourcoast #beachecosystems #coastalawareness #marinesanctuaries #oceanawareness ⁣ ⁣ https://jo.my/ig_seagrass

And that's a wrap! 🎁 ⁣ ⁣ Thanks you so much to all the volunteers - new and experienced, young and old for bringing their keen eyes👀 and winning🎖️ attitudes to the Roebuck Bay mudflats for the past 4 mornings! ⁣ ⁣ Now to get back to the desk and start processing all this priceless data⁣ ⁣ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #BroomeSeagrass #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methidology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BroomeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome⁣

🤔 Did you know that Seagrass🌱 IMPROVES water💧quality?⠀ Not only does it absorb nutrients and reduces turbidity (makes water more clear), studies also show that seagrass can also absorb all different types of Bacteria🤢- Including ones that come from humans!⠀ ⠀ If you love your crystal clear clean oceans then you have to love Seagrass! 😍😊 ⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

Due to the construction👷 at Town Beach we will be meeting in a slightly different place than usual.⠀ ⠀ Our ever brave volunteers will have to face a whole new environment..... THE PLAY GROUND 😱 😂 ⠀ ⠀ You better make sure to come down on Tuesday so you don't miss this once in a lifetime chance 🤣 😁 ⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

Get EXCITED!!! Only 5️⃣ more sleeps😴 till our first monitoring event for the year 😁 😁 ⠀ ⠀ We can all be a bit groggy in the morning so here are the meeting points for each site in case you get lost 😂 ⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

🤔Did you know that turtles🐢 can eat up to 2kg of seagrass🌱 a day?!?⠀ ⠀ Sometimes we find them, like this beautiful Green Turtle, having a rest 😴on the mud flats while we are monitoring. Its always so special when it happens 😊 ⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

🤔 Did you know that per hectare seagrass🌱 can store 2️⃣ times more carbon than terrestrial (land) forrests🌲🌳?!?⠀ ⠀ AND⠀ ⠀ Despite only making up less than 0.2% of the world’s oceans, Seagrass stores approximately 10% of all carbon buried in ocean sediment every year 😮💪⠀ ⠀ #BroomeSeagrass #FromSeagrassBigFishGrow #RoebuckBay #Broome #SeagrassWatch #CitizenScience #Bioindicator #methodology #research #MarineFoodWeb #LoveFishThankSeagrass #BrommeTime #BroomeLIfe #science #LowTide #TheKimberley #environment #sea #SoBroome #seagrass #SeagrassLove #volunteerbroome

Did you know seagrasses absorb and store carbon 35 times more efficiently than rainforests?! However, destructive fishing practices, coastal development and pollution (to name a few) continue to drive its decline. In its natural state seagrass provides us with coastal protection, therefore reducing the need to implement artificial coastal defences. Additionally, 20% of global fisheries depend on seagrass for nursery grounds. -Project Seagrass @projectseagrass is an amazing organization that is trying to help save this important ecosystem! They even have a seagrass spotter app that you can use to upload photos of seagrass and report where and what kind of seagrass you’ve seen to help track this important data! #projectseagrass #seagrassspotter #seagrass #seagrasslove #climatechange #sustainablefishing #seafoodwatch #climatecrisisresolution #saveouroceans

Seagrass leaves either big or small creating canopy like terrestrial forest, providing hiding spots for various organisms especially juvenile fish. The latest finding concluded that 1 hectare of seagrass can support up to 80,000 fish instead of 40,000. Protect seagrass is protecting this vital nursery ground, which ensure food safety and abundance of seafood for human comsuption. Seagrass are flowering plants that grow entirely underwater. Despite their name, seagrass are actually not 'grasses' at all, as they do flower. Like land plants, seagrass produce oxygen. The depth at which seagrass are found is limited by water clarity, which determines the amount of light reaching the plant. Amazing, seagrass habitat is world's second largest carbon sink and 35 time more effective trapping carbon compare to terrestrial forest.

Common residents in seagrass meadows.. hermit crab. During seagrass restoration, small snails attracted to seagrass, then hermit crabs. Some of the hermit crabs using same snail's shell. This possible explain hermit crab feed on those snails and in the same time get a new shells. #SeagrassLove #SeagrassGuardians #BorneoMarineLife #MarineBiologistLife

Grouper at seagrass restoration site!!! Possible due to abundance of cardinalfish attracted to restored seagrass bed, few juvenile grouper like this stay very close. Like a guardian safeguard its feeding ground. #SeagrassLove #BorneoMarineLife #SeagrassGuardians

Throwback 2017... testing recycled materials to protect seagrass transplants. Some fishes still manage to slip in and gain some protection from predators. Protect and conserve seagrass in any mean we can, before losing this fragile habitat and its biodiversity. #SeagrassLove #SeagrassGuardians
