Can underwater gardening save our giant kelp?

Kelp forests are the foundation of the Great Southern Reef – Australia’s vast but little-known temperate reef system that stretches 8000 km from Brisbane to Kalbarri via Tasmania. It’s a global hotspot of biodiversity but many kelp species in Tasmania and elsewhere are under threat and in decline due to a range of anthropogenic pressures.

Dr Cayne Layton from IMAS will tell us whether habitat restoration could provide some help for our kelp, and share what it’s like to be an underwater gardener on the Great Southern Reef.
