| Join Nikki Wright, Executive Director of the SeaChange Marine Conservation Society, in a presentation on eelgrass, its role in oxygen production, and the many positives to our world that this seagrass provides.
Nikki Wright has been working with eelgrass and nearshore restoration for over two decades, and has touched these sensitive habitats in areas reaching from Victoria to Vancouver to the Gulf Islands to here on the Sunshine Coast. Her passion has brought light to many people on the many important functions of this plant and the habitat it provides, and she and her team have restored many hectares of shorelines over the years.”
