TIME is ticking for a treasured underwater sea-plant in the Balearic Islands.
Posidonia Oceanica, is slowly being eroded, with the current colony being the very last.
The plant is unique to the Mediterranean sea, it was first spotted in 2006, by keen divers.
Currently, the 100,000-year-old plant, stretches eight kilometres across the ocean.
The precious plant, also known as ‘Neptune grass’ is an indication of transparent waters.
The intensive oxygen the plants produces gives divers and swimmers crystal clear vision when on underwater excursions.
