Help The Kelp
Help The Kelp have banded together to attempt to restore this vital indicator of ocean health. Team members include marine biologists, divers, journalists and concerned citizens. This afternoon, two divers supported by a shore crew and a kayaker, mapped out the locations for the first area to be replanted with kelp spores. With assistance from the Nile Creek Enhancement Society, they hope to seed two kilometres of coastal water off Berry Point and then monitor the progress of the spores as they grow into healthy beds.
