Meadows of Knowledge Poster - Narrative


Despite the presence of seagrass meadows (H. wrightii, C. nodosa, and Z. noltei) in West Africa, this region has historically been one of the least studied areas of seagrasses in the world. Without adequate data and knowledge of seagrasses in West Africa, these ecosystems have often been omitted from protection, conservation and management policies. A recent seagrass programme funded by the MAVA foundation has supported research and capacity- building activities to map and monitor seagrasses within seven West African pilot countries: Cabo Verde, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mauritania, Senegal and Sierra Leone.
