SEAFOREST EVENT, Wednesday, July 24, 2024

SAVE THE DATE !!! On Wednesdy, July 24, 2024, a National Workshop on the topic of management of beached Posidonia oceanica will be held at the Cilento Vallo Diano and Alburni National Park in Castellabate at Villa Matarazzo. The title of the event is "Beached Posidonia, sustainable methods for active management" . The event will be attended by beneficiaries of the LIFE SeaForest project, but also by public institutions, scientific research, and the business world, which in various capacities have developed experiences on this issue. Follow the news on the website and Facebook page, the final program will be published in the coming days.





























Ecosystem services

Posidonia oceanica meadows provide important ecosystem services, i.e. multiple benefits provided by ecosystems to mankind. Through the development of the SEAFOREST methodology for estimating the carbon sinks of Posidonia beds, it was also possible to assess the economic value of the ecosystem benefits in the project areas. For example, for the 'carbon sequestration' service, the SEAFOREST methodology estimates the net reductions and removals of greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the implementation of planned project activities, such as mooring camps, and implemented for the restoration of Posidonia oceanica meadows in the marine protected areas included in the project.

More information on the SEAFOREST methodology and the ecosystem services offered by posidonia beds can be found on the website in the PROJECT tab (PRODUCTS SECTION) Action C1


Training course revegetation Posidonia oceanica

In April, from the 17th to the 21st, the staff of the 3 National Parks was involved in a training course on techniques for carrying out revegetation interventions in degraded areas of Posidonia. In fact, in the course of 2023 ISPRA, with the support of the University of Sassari, will carry out revegetation activities as part of action C5 of the project. The aim of this action is the re-use of reproductive plant material (seeds and shoots) of beached Posidonia for the replenishment of habitat 1120*









Monitoring visit 2022

December 6th and 7th were two beautiful and intense days for the SeaForest LIFE project.

In fact, we received a visit from the monitor with whom we discussed the progress of the project at the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park. It was also an opportunity to visit Cala Portese, on the island of Caprera, which will become the model ecological beach for the sustainable management of beached Posidonia.
