Indonesian Archipelago Seagrasses in Rapid Decline

New study reveals that the center of the world's marine biodiversity is in danger,
Swansea University, April 10, 2018.

"...examined the risks to seagrass meadows throughout the vast Indonesian archipelago that makes up a key part of the famed Coral Triangle."

"...up to 90% of the seagrass meadows that they examined in Indonesia have been extensively damaged and degraded over the past five years."

"Declining seagrass health is the result of shifting environmental conditions due largely to coastal development, land reclamation, and deforestation, as well as seaweed farming, overfishing and garbage dumping."
