In a new podcast, Dr Ian Hendy talks about his research that will greatly improve the vibrant wildlife, the environment and benefit communities local to the Solent.

Dr Hendy, Senior Teaching Fellow in the School of Biological Sciences, is involved in a number of exciting marine conversation projects on the South Coast of England including a re-wilding project that aims to create a safe habitat for one of the UK’s native seahorse species, the protected Short Snouted Seahorse and a Sir David Attenborough-backed campaign to restore a vast underwater kelp forest off the West Sussex coast.

In the podcast, Dr Hendy explains how restoring these important marine ecosystems back to their natural state, the oceans will come alive with a diverse abundance of marine wildlife, impacts of climate will be reduced and local communities can see economic benefits.
