In our newest podcast episode, Kaska talks to Clare Maynard about the Green Shores saltmarsh regeneration project she’s running in Tayport.
They discuss the secret life of saltmarshes, their importance to wildlife and preventing erosion and how her experiments are helping re-establish this threatened habitat locally. Clare has some good news about the success of plantings done by our volunteers a couple of years ago, and how marshes can help us fight climate change by stabilising our shores and through carbon capture.
You can find Clare’s experimental site on the shore between the caravan park and Foodmek – perhaps next time you are out for your daily dose of lockdown exercise you can have a closer look?
