Friends of SeaWeaver

SeaWeaver has only been possible to develop with the support I've been fortunate to receive. I'm a designer, and as I stated in my design approach, even the best design is only 1/3 of a conservation solution. Below are some of the expert scientists, conservation practitioners and project pioneers who have helped me along the way.

A 2x2' woven mat was installed in the Seattle Aquarium's Birds and Shores enclosure, with eelgrass planted in between the woven fibers. Monitoring the growth around the weaves will let us know how the new plants are able to resist the forces of turbulent water.  See SeaWeaver project page for more information

Special thanks to Erin Meyer & Julie Carpenter
