Kelp in ocean

Restoring Kelp Forests

Find out how scientists are restoring this crucial habitat.

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 scale needed, whilst giving them the best chance to survive in a changing ocean? Trialling restoration techniques using rocks seeded with baby kelp could be the answer.
