Blue Carbon - Blue Carbon is about mitigating climate change through coastal ecosystem management. Blue carbon refers to the carbon captured by the world’s ocean and coastal systems. These environments utilize the natural carbon sinks within seagrass meadow, mangrove, kelp forest, and salt marsh ecosystems to sequester, store, and release carbon over thousands of years. Blue carbon habitats are even more efficient at carbon capture than terrestrial forests and due to this, these environments are becoming key areas in the search for natural and artificial carbon sinks to aid in the reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide, and can be found around the world.
