The Kelp Forest Foundation has a vision of harnessing the power of giant kelp to help restore the health of the planet. Through their research they aim to reduce the gap in science and knowledge around kelp forests’ ecosystem services, which are known to sequester significant amounts of carbon thereby providing long term solutions to climate change. Their goals include: raising awareness of the economic and ecological importance of kelp forests, driving research, building knowledge and strengthening the science around wild forest restoration and cultivated kelp afforestation. This includes creating giant kelp spore banks. The research and results will be open access and made publicly available
