Find out how scientists are restoring this crucial habitat
About this event
Kelp forests used to dominate coastlines around the world, but an accelerated loss of kelp is happening globally. How can we restore these crucial forests at the scales needed, whilst giving them the best chance to survive in a changing ocean? We are trailing techniques for restoring these essential kelp forests using rocks seeded with baby kelp.
