Seagrass-Watch Issue 37 June 2009 now out!

Len McKenzie has just announced the latest issue of Seagrass-Watch news!
He says: "In this issue two of the worlds leading scientists on seagrass physiology (Mats Bj√∂rk and Sven Beer) debate the affects of ocean acidification and the role seagrass could play in mitigating the effects. Let’s hope that our high-productivity meadows may be looked upon as areas that are safe from ocean acidification, further highlighting the need for their protection from decline."

Yes, indeed. Our work on our seagrasses can have a broader impact in better understanding and protecting seagrasses everywhere!

And TeamSeagrass is in the news too! There's a great article with lots of sneaky photos of us at the recent Seagrass Workshop in May.
And our Seagrass Angels at Labrador are also in the news!
There's a feature of their study of seagrass growth at Labrador!

There are lots of other articles about seagrass monitoring all over the world. With lovely photos of the seagrasses and amazing animals found there. Like this one taken in Bali by Rudi!
There is also a feature on the estuarine crocodiles with advice on how to be croc wise. I'm not sure whether to be happy or sad that we in Singapore don't have too much to worry about regarding estuarine crocodiles. Sigh.

Well, some of the "croc wise" tips still do apply to us. Like "Never swim or stand in water above knee-height".

So do go to the Seagrass-Watch website and download the PDF of the latest newsletter! Refresh your screen if you don't see the icon for the latest issue.
