SeaForester develops its Blue Front Yard Approach with support from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF)

SeaForester signed an agreement with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to develop its Blue Frond Yard approach to restoring marine forest habitats and delivering environmental and economic benefits to coastal communities.

The Blue Front Yard Approach is a novel way to restore our coastal ecosystems and presents a model for community-based engagement in marine restoration. In the same way as we maintain and restore nature areas on land (parks, forests, green spaces), a healthy and well-maintained ‘Blue Front Yard’ provides substantial benefits to local communities and economies. 

The project aims to gather the needed information to provide clients with reliable estimates of seaweed ecosystem services and their value to industry and local communities to incentivize project adoption. The project also explores strategies for stakeholder involvement and sustainable financing of restoration projects.
