Action group

To tackle the global crisis facing kelp forests we need to work at a global scale, and broadly develop and implement solutions. To this end, we have established the global 


Green Gravel Action Group.
 

This international group of researchers will trial green gravel restoration in different regions. Together we will communicate research findings and develop general protocols for different kelp species and in different parts of the world. This will facilitate broad implementation and uptake of the tool.
