 New stretch target

Sussex Seabed Restoration Project ambition is to work at the heart of local communities, through creating and developing awareness of the consequences of the destruction of the seabed in Sussex, the environmental impact and how communities can now play a crucial role in the protection and re-wilding of the seabed, supporting the return of sea kelp and fish to our shores.

Sussex inshore waters once had a cover of rich Kelp beds and a range of individual’s plants. This restoration project will take years to complete but any donations would be grateful to help combat climate change. Off setting out car

Update 2024 Jan and a massive thanks. 

New video up in the click and a update of the project. 

The Crowdfunding page update and video.

The research and the science behind Sussex Kelp restoration have really come together this year. With the donations, I invested into all new equipment to purify the seawater and work on the brown algae wavelength others use Worldwide. Creating a pioneering prototype and pathway to success growing our Sussex Kelp sorus collected from Pagham and West Wittering and Lancing. Nobody in the UK has set up a Kelp restoration project from a garage let alone still working in the NHS. 

I'll go into more detail once I get that page going next month. I just wanted to say a massive thanks from the Kelp hub. Without a community crowdfunding page, this wouldn't be possible. I've closed the crowdfunding page as at last we have the system and methodology. 

I just wanted to say a massive thanks for creating this project. The crowdfunding page has created the awareness and created the scientific research.

I'll update this video on the crowdfunding page for all the donations. 🌱🌊🌱🌊
