Seagrass Watch » - The world’s largest global scientific, non-destructive seagrass assessment and monitoring program.
Broome Community Seagrass Monitoring Project – One of 300 seagrass monitoring projects globally that help to protect seagrass resources. Three sites in Roebuck Bay are monitored using methods specified by Seagrass-Watch, the world’s largest global scientific, non-destructive seagrass assessment and monitoring program. Families and individuals from a range of backgrounds gather data from quadrats, which are then entered into Seagrass Watch’s national database, contributing to the pool of global information being collected about seagrass, while also assisting coastal managers. The Broome Community Seagrass Monitoring Project is in the baseline collection phase; information collected during this stage will indicate natural trends and changes in seagrass cover across seasons.
