Kelp forests are the centers of diverse and productive ecosystems. They are located in shallow and clear waters as these algae need sunlight to survive, so they usually occur around coasts. They are home to hundreds of species under the water, and these forests can be used as nurseries for young, while seabirds and marine mammals use them as shelter from predators and storms. Kelp beds are smaller areas of anchored kelp, and as they float to the top of the body of water seals and sea otters rest on the kelp, as they feel secure and protected from predators.
Did you know that Giant Kelp is harvested from kelp forests and used as a binding agent in products like ice cream, cereal, ranch dressing, yogurt, toothpaste, lotion and more? They are very important for our everyday lives!
