KELP FOREST – ENHANCING BIODIVERSITY AND FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE
Kelp is large brown algae that form forests in shallow waters. They provide coastal protection, breeding grounds for countless species, produce oxygen, store carbon and are used to make food and medicine.
Kelp Forest is an installation by artist Camilla Brendon. She has worked closely with scientists and environmentalists to learn about this habitat and will chair the panel which will grant the audience insight into the versatility and importance of seaweeds. Attendees can experience the installation at the event.
