Posidonia oceanica is a seagrass species present along the coastline of all continents except Antarctica.
In favorable conditions, posidonia can largely cover the seabed in dense meadows. These wonderful ecosystems are highly productive and dynamic, and provide an important source of food and a habitat for a wide range of species, as well as representing some of the most significant carbon sinks on Earth. However, maritime construction, the pollution of coastal waters, anchorage and artificial beaches are all endangering these prairies on the Mediterranean seabed.
This event is free and open to all: reservation required.
