Threats: human impacts and mitigation
In this issue we take a timely look around our world at the impact we are
having on our coastal waters. Unfortunately it is these same waters that are
the home for seagrass meadows and in many places these meadows are paying
the price for living too close to us. The pictures in this edition speak as
loud as any words. The challenges are global - no one country is outstanding
either in the problems and loss of seagrass or in finding manageable
solutions. But it is not all bad news. Many initiatives seek to slow and
halt the decline in this vital habitat. Risk mapping and working with
farmers in Australia; managing vessel damage in Florida and Wales;
restoration and working with local community and indigenous groups in
Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines, are all good examples. There is a
role for us all in shaping public opinion and policy and we trust the
articles in this issue will encourage useful discussion on positive
approaches to a better world.  
Happy Reading
