Restoring Estuarine and Coastal Habitats

Our estuaries and coasts have been transformed by human activity. We have lost vast areas of important habitats and the services they once provided our society. We have the ability to reverse some of these changes and there are now many opportunities for successful habitat restoration.

REACH (Restoring Estuarine and Coastal Habitats) brings together international experts from the UK, Overseas Territories, the North Sea, and Irish Sea border countries working in academia, government, NGOs and industry to work collaboratively to restore estuarine and coastal habitats.

ReMeMaRe is an initiative within REACH that is dedicated to Restoring [seagrass] Meadows, [salt] Marsh and [oyster] Reef around the English coastline. Click here for more information.
