With every wetsuit purchase, we partner with Sea Trees and The Bay Foundation and local divers to remove over-populations of sea-urchins, and restore giant kelp forests in Palos Verdes, Southern California.
Over the last 100 years, more than 90% of California's kelp forests have disappeared. Due to the human impacts of climate change and the removal of key predators like sea otters, sea urchins (which feast on the kelp) have proliferated to create "barrens" where kelp cannot grow.
The good - once the urchins are removed - kelp is the fastest growing organism and can grow up to 2ft per day!
Every square foot of giant kelp you help to restore:
- Provides employment for local fisher-people and divers
- Creates critical habitat for 100s species
- Sequesters carbon
