We are a group of volunteer divers and others who share a deep concern about the extraordinary loss of kelp forests in Monterey Bay and throughout California beginning in 2014.
Keith Rootsaert organized the Giant Giant Kelp Restoration Project in 2018. Our goals are to protect and actively restore California’s kelp forests, increase public and policy-maker awareness of the importance of the biodiversity within kelp forest ecosystems, and use science-based methods to monitor their health and improve restoration techniques. We advance our mission through training citizen-scientist divers in kelp restoration methods, engaging communities through volunteer programs, communicating about the impact of public policy on kelp forest restoration and conservation, and collaborating with the scientific community and governmental agencies.
Our work strives to allow California’s kelp forests to thrive and provide benefits to marine wildlife and humankind for future generations.
We are currently actively working to restore kelp at Tanker's Reef in Monterey.
