ResilienSEA aims at improving knowledge and experience from pilot sites in order to lead to conservation actions for seagrass beds in seven coastal countries, Mauritania, Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Cape Verde and Sierra Leone.

Enhancing scientific expertise and building capacity of local, national and regional actors in seven West African countries to improve seagrass protection.

Seagrasses are one of the ocean’s most important habitats. They provide benefits such as nursery and feeding grounds for fish and marine animals, and they protect our coastlines and store carbon. At the same time, because they are one of the world’s least known ecosystems they are in dire need of protection.

This project will bring together managers and researchers to gather data and create national and regional expertise within West Africa, resulting in the ability to enact positive change for seagrasses. Its comprises four components, which are:

  • Scientific research 
  • Capacity building 
  • Communication and awareness raising
  • Legal and policy framework
