The seagrass meadows are one of the most important ecosystems in the coastal areas as they provide various ecosystem services for global biodiversity, human-wellbeing, climate change adaptation and mitigation. However, these ecosystems are declining in alarming rate especially in the Southeast Asian region where the pressures on seagrass meadows have remained same for the last 20 years. In Thailand, the restoration and the monitoring of seagrass ecosystems has been limited, combined with different methodologies across the country and the lack of monitoring options. The objective of this short video is to introduce the path for restoration of Enhalus acoroides from the seedling and all the most important steps included in the restoration. The video is following the major steps of fruit and seed collection, growth of the seeds in the laboratory, planting in the field and monthly monitoring. This short video provides the opportunity to share the knowledge on the appropriate methodology to the local communities, restoration practitioners and other interested parties from government or private sector as outreach programs.
