Protecting Our Underwater Kelp Forests

Underwater kelp forests are some of the most productive habitats on earth, havens for biodiversity, protectors of shorelines, and carbon sinks. But with climate change bringing rising sea temperatures, these vulnerable forests are in danger of being lost. Researchers are diving deep and taking to the skies to map these critical, life-giving underwater ocean forests.

This episode is part of our series Bare Earth, where we set out to see what the bare-earth landscapes of our coast will reveal when seen from above—way, way above.
