Swansea scientists’ research features in BBC’s Blue Planet II
Swansea University marine biologist Dr Richard Unsworth and his team have contributed their expertise to the latest series of the popular BBC program, Blue Planet II.
Together with colleagues in Cardiff University, members of ‘Project Seagrass’ were asked to submit ideas to Blue Planet’s production team. Research conducted by the team on seagrass meadows and the collaborative hunting activities of grouper and octopuses eventually featured in the ‘Green Seas’ episode of the television series. Project Seagrass also provided additional factual information and technical advice, as well as fact-checking all content.
Project Seagrass is an environmental charity dedicated to the conservation of seagrass ecosystems through education, influence, research and action. To find out more about their work, visit: www.projectseagrass.org
