Conservation & Regeneration
CMS GeoScience is delighted to have been working to support a very important initiative here in the South West.
The Ocean Conservation Trust is working towards a vision of a thriving ocean and a fundamental part of that is restoring and protecting vital ocean habitats. Blue Meadows is their biggest and most ambitious project yet, taking a holistic approach towards the protection, regeneration and restoration of our valuable seagrass meadows, which are so important for the biodiversity of the sea, to defend our coastline and as a possible store for carbon in the future.
With two of our offices based in #Plymouth and #Falmouth, where existing seagrass meadows are located, we were only too happy to get involved & support preliminary research that the Ocean Conservation Trust are undertaking, to establish the viability of the carbon capture in the meadows.
Our team working the beautiful seascape of Plymouth Sound collecting various seabed samples for detailed analysis to determine the carbon content within the meadows. The core samples were taken to our Plymouth labs for initial splitting and logging by Dr Jodie Fisher & Jessica Cramp from the University of Plymouth.
We are very proud to be playing a part in this very important project and will continue to work closely with the Ocean Conservation Trust and the other partners in the Blue Meadows project to ensure that our valuable seagrass meadows are protected and restored for the benefit of us all
