Project Description

The goal of this project is to restore damage to shallow seagrass beds on lands managed by the Department of the Interior (DOI) in the five Gulf states. The objective is to re-establish seagrass (Thalassia testudinum) in beds located on the south side of the Naval Live Oaks Preserve at the Florida District of Gulf Islands National Seashore (GUIS) in Santa Rosa Sound. "The seagrass beds will be enhanced through the addition of nutrients and protected with buoys, signage and/or other protective measures."
