There are 58 different types of seagrass found around the world but the British Virgin Islands are home to only five different species. The most common seagrasses found in the BVI are turtle grass (Thalassia testudinum) and manatee grass (Syringodium filiforme).Cooper Island's Manchioneel Bay is extremely lucky to have Seagrass stretching along it's bay. These unusual marine flowering plants are called seagrasses because in many species the leaves are long and narrow, and these plants often grow in large meadows.
