Introduction to the Project

LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES is focusing on how sensitive seabed habitats are impacted by recreational activities. Together, our partnership aims to:

 

  • Reduce recreational pressures on sensitive habitats
  • Restore and protect sensitive habitats
  • Promote awareness of these habitats and their importance

 

ReMEDIES is funded by the EU LIFE programme and led by Natural England in partnership with The Royal Yachting AssociationMarine Conservation SocietyOcean Conservation Trust and Plymouth City Council/Tamar Estuaries Consultative Forum.

More About the Project

 

What role does The Green Blue have in the project?

The RYA and The Green Blue are playing a key role in highlighting the importance of protecting sensitive seabed habitats such as seagrass and Maerl to those who participate in recreational boating and providing guidance on sustainable anchoring best practices and the use of Advanced eco-Mooring Systems (AMS) to help protect these important habitats.

To achieve this The Green Blue is delivering outreach work in the form of webinars,  face to face talks at clubs, RYA instructor training as well as attending boating events to speak with boat users to raise awareness.
