Scientists from Operation Crayweed are bringing back crayweed to Sydney Coast, a Mission Blue Hope Spot. Crayweed, a locally extinct seaweed species, is transplanted onto mesh mats underwater allowing it to reproduce and settle onto surrounding bare rocks and provide new habitat for a diverse range of marine creatures. Here, Derrick Cruz and Maddy Langley (UNSW Sydney and Sydney Institute of Marine Science) measure the length of a crayweed transplant at North Bondi.
