Help Our Kelp: Rewilding the Sussex Kelp Forest Tuesday, 23rd March 2021 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Online talk with Sarah Ward (Sussex Wildlife Trust) and Dr Ian Hendy (University of Portsmouth / Blue Marine Foundation)
Kelp, the group of brown seaweeds that are capable of forming dense 'kelp forests', was once abundant along the West Sussex coastline. But this important habitat has diminished over time, leaving just a few small patches and individual plants, mostly in shallow water along the shoreline. Through the Help Our Kelp partnership, we want to bring it back!
Join Sarah Ward (Sussex Wildlife Trust) and Dr Ian Hendy (University of Portsmouth / Blue Marine Foundation) as we dive into the kelp forest and learn all about this amazing habitat, the animals that depend upon it and why it is vital that we act now to protect and restore it.
The talk will last for approximately 45 minutes and there will be a short Q&A session at the end.
