Blue Sea Thinking: Saving Formentera’s Ocean Meadows
Crystaline waters and warm white sand… what could there possibly be to worry about on a long weekend on the remote, idyllic island of Formentera? It is renowned for its fields of the sea plant Oceanic Posodinia. My trip there consisted of Mediteranean delights mixed with sobering education about the declining health of the seagrass and what this means for our planet. I attended the Save Posidonia Forum to learn about what they call ‘the lungs of the Mediterranean’, how they are currently fighting for air and what responsible tourism must do to help them breathe again.
