LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES Project
Since July 2019, the Royal Yachting Association (RYA), including The Green Blue and other organisations have partnered with Natural England in a four year EU LIFE funded project known as the LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES Project.
What does ReMEDIES stand for?
Reducing and Mitigating Erosion and Disturbance Impacts affEcting the Seabed.
What role does The Green Blue have in the project?
As a supporting partner, The Green Blue’s role within the LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES Project is to promote environmental best practice to the recreational boating community and to carry out awareness raising outreach work, including working closely with boating businesses, marinas, clubs, centres and RYA instructors.
The RYA and The Green Blue will play 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 in advising how their boating methods, particularly anchoring and mooring, can help preserve and restore these important habitats.
