With the aim of protecting ‘blue carbon’ ecosystems, the federal government in Australia has committed $100 million to ocean conservation. The funds will be directed towards ocean management and methods that extract ‘blue carbon’ from the atmosphere using plants like seagrass and mangroves. These ocean plants are able to sequester and store four times more carbon than terrestrial ecosystems, according to Michelle Grady, the Australian director of Pew Charitable Trusts.
