Sea-wilding: Rewilding the Ocean for a Sustainable Future

Rewilding is a progressive approach to conservation. It’s about giving nature a helping hand allowing it to thrive independently and bringing it back to its natural state, creating wilder and more biodiverse habitats. This approach, however, is not exclusive to terrestrial habitats. In fact, rewilding the ocean is a key factor not only to restore marine ecosystems but also to fight climate change.

The consequences of disrupting nature’s balance

Extremes of drought and flooding, no snow in winter, heat waves in the Northern Hemisphere and still wearing a winter coat at the beginning of May are just few of the many signs of climate change.

What few might realise is that when we impact the environment of one corner of the earth, the effect ripples in the remaining three.

The Benefits of Nature Restoration Projects for Coastal Communities

Oysters are keystone species to generate biodiversity and bring our oceans to balance again. Their impact on the marine habitat is incredibly positive, but they also offer many benefits beyond the water. 

It is also important to acknowledge the broader scope of coastal restoration efforts, such as kelp, seagrass or mangrove restoration projects.

These are the benefits of nature restoration projects for coastal communities.

Oyster Beds Can Also Save Wading Birds

Wading or water birds are either native or passing migrating birds common to shorelines, river mouths and estuaries. A decline in the population of some wader species has been linked to a decrease in the availability of food and settlement surfaces. The restoration of oyster beds is the solution to help wading birds.

What Is The Nitrogen Crisis And How Can We Solve It.

Nitrogen is part of the air we breathe and an essential element for growth and reproduction in plants and animals. But in the last decades there has been excessive use of synthetic fertilisers in agriculture, containing high levels of nitrogen.

As a result, algal blooms take place and the oxygen in the water becomes unavailable for fish that die, leading to marine dead zones.

What is Nitrogen and why is everyone talking about it

We are used to hearing about CO2 and Carbon emissions. But lately, there is a new term that is often mentioned when talking about sustainability and climate change. That term is “nitrogen”, and is often followed by “crisis”.

Why is nitrogen all of a sudden a matter of concern?

From Food To Cosmetics: How The Use Of Oysters Has Evolved And Why It Matters

Today, the aquaculture industry supplies most of the oysters on the market. Once consumed, oyster shells are often thrown away and become trash. Today, the high calcium carbonate content of the shells also finds application in cement production, glass making, food preservation and even cosmetics! But little do people know how precious these shells are to oyster larvae in nature.

Traditional Marine Conservation: The Scaling Problem

The traditional marine conservation model depends on philanthropic funds, a linear model with no possibility of scale. The solution is simple: we need to start accounting for the value that regeneration brings (there is a whole lot of it that we describe in other blogs) and selling that value to buyers that need it.
