Blue carbon is the carbon stored in the soil and plants of important ecosystems such as coastal wetlands, mangroves, tidal marshes, and seagrasses.
With increased levels of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere contributing to the warming of our planet, we can use coastal ecosystems to store carbon for thousands of years. However, human activities have led to the destruction of a significant number of these important blue carbon sinks.
Join us for a panel discussion about why blue carbon is important and what Queensland-based initiatives and research are already tapping into this valuable carbon sink.
Valuing Queensland’s Blue Carbon – Q&A discussion is a World Science Festival Brisbane Affiliate Event.
This panel has been facilitated by the Queensland Department of Environment and Science Land Restoration Fund.
