Abstract: This engaging presentation will cover the basics of blue carbon – what it is, why it’s important – and will focus particularly on the role of marine plants, algae, and animals in sequestering carbon and keeping it out of the atmosphere. We’ll also discuss actions that can be taken to ensure blue carbon is protected and, when necessary, restored.
