Kelp forests cover a third of the world’s coastlines and support hundreds of millions of people, but they are disappearing.
The Kelp Forest Alliance is a collaborative home that brings together people and organisations to enhance, protect, and restore these incredible ecosystems.
Humans have been restoring kelp forests around the world for over 300 years. Past restoration efforts hold extremely valuable information about what does and does not work in re-establishing kelp forests. For years, this information has been hidden in reports or restricted by language barriers and solutions did not flow around the globe.
This is a living database for this information: a place for people to draw upon lessons from current or past projects, track the latest updates from the field, and monitor global progress towards restoring our underwater forests. Through the interactive Data Hub, users can upload new project data to share their latest work with each other.
