Posidonia oceanica meadows are the most iconic Mediterranean marine habitat. The plant is greatly responsible for the idyllic image of a pristine sea that every year attracts millions of tourists from everywhere in the world. Ironically, it is massive touristic development what is driven these surreal undersea prairies to collapse.
Losing Posidonia is losing a natural heritage unique in the world, and thereby a major economic engine for the whole region.
Only the urgent implementation of effective conservation measures could grant a future for both sea life, and people by the Sea at the Center of Earth.
