Seagrass seeds planted to tackle climate change

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Seagrass seeds planted to tackle climate change” – below is their description.

16,000 bags of seagrass seeds are being planted off the coast of Plymouth to help create an underwater meadow.

Scientists say seagrass can capture and store carbon faster than forests on land, but 92% of the UK’s seagrass has been lost.

It’s part of a four year project to revitalise marine life and help tackle climate change.

Sky’s Science Correspondent Thomas Moore reports.
