Signs of Success: Reversing the Course of Degradation

2022 World Seagrass Conference & 14th International Seagrass Biology Workshop

The theme of WSC2022 and ISBW14, “Signs of Success: Reversing the Course of Degradation," is inspired by recent successes in the conservation, resurgence, and restoration of seagrasses and other submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) in areas around the world. The Chesapeake Bay, the location of this year's meeting, is a perfect example of such success. Thanks to sustained research and management efforts, Chesapeake Bay - the largest estuary in the U.S. - is now home to the most expansive resurgence of SAV known. This and other stories of success will be highlighted throughout our conference, and field trips will provide you the opportunity to view Chesapeake Bay SAV firsthand.
