Why should I care about seagrass?


Today’s Video of the Day comes from Queensland University and features a look at why you should care about seagrass.

As Dr. Paul Wu explains, seagrass meadows are extremely important to ecosystems and support a wide variety of marine life, from fish to turtles to mammals and birds. But seagrasses have also been disappearing at an alarming rate.
