Living Seawalls is designed to benefit both humans and nature

“The research team is monitoring the efficacy of the installations in enhancing the biodiversity of seawalls, as well as key ecological functions such as water filtration, carbon uptake and nutrient cycling. The results will help to ascertain the scale of installations needed to provide tangible ecological benefits, and also those specific designs most suited to specific ecological goals such as improvement of water quality or enhancement of fisheries productivity.”
