Research & Rehabilitation

Cockburn Cement are committed to a range of marine environmental protection measures with a comprehensive Seagrass Research and Rehabilitation Plan (SRRP) included in the Environmental Management Programme (EMP). This $2 million research program, to develop practical technical solutions for the rehabilitation and re-establishment of seagrass, was undertaken over a ten-year period (2003 - 2012). The SRRP covered many areas of research, planting and monitoring of seagrass. The study involved three universities, a botanic gardens and parks management authority, several leading environmental consultants and a marine engineering firm, all based in Western Australia.

WSeagrass and divere are committed to a range of marine environmental protection measures including the initial $2 million research program to develop practical technical solutions for the rehabilitation and re-establishment of seagrass.

Seagrass rehabilitation and re-establishment solutions developed as part of the SRRP included a mechanical seagrass transplanter, tissue culture techniques for the micro-propagation of seagrass seedlings in nursery conditions and research into the best conditions for regrowing seagrass after transplantation.

The SRRP was officially signed off as complete by the Office of Environmental Protection Authority in 2012.
