Sustainable Anchoring & Moorings
Join a new series of webinars being hosted by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and British Marine's joint environmental programme, The Green Blue, as partners in the LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES Project, led by Natural England.
The three ‘Sustainable Anchoring and Moorings’ webinars aim to provide an insight into the ReMEDIES Project and the importance of sensitive seabed habitats like seagrass at some of the project’s seagrass sites. Each of the webinars will have speakers from partner organisations in the project who have local knowledge of the environment at each of the seagrass sites.
Attendees will also discover ways in which the recreational boating community can help to safeguard these habitats through anchoring best practice and the use of Advanced eco-Mooring Systems (AMS).
- An introduction to the LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES Project
- Why protected marine habitats like seagrass and maerl are important
