SeaForester co-funding the new University of Western Australia ARC 2019 Linkage Project: Restoring blue forests with green gravel

SeaForester is co-funding the ARC 2019 Linkage Project: Restoring blue forests with green gravel, coordinated by the University of Western Australia.

The process of producing the green gravel restoration technique

The project aims to progress the novel green gravel technique from concept to application on Ecklonia radiata reefs in Western Australia. The project will run over 4 years, during which they will develop and optimize the Green Gravel technique for this region, perform field tests, and conduct large scale restoration trials using targeted source populations. The end goal is to provide scalable and practical solutions to future-proof kelp forests against climate and anthropogenic stress.
