Waves can be a detrimental thing for our shores. Wave action through storms along beaches can erode the coastline, especially beaches due to their small sediment particle size, over a short period of time.
Coastal habitats such as Coral Reefs, Mangroves, and Seagrass Meadows have been playing an important role for the coastline to ensure it stays secure from erosion.
In today's episode, I discuss why Seagrass Meadow habitats are so important to reducing Climate Change, securing to the coastline, and protecting biodiversity as they face destruction from human disturbance, invasive species, and water quality.
