Kelp forest (Sold)
Kelp forests are giant forests of seaweed. They grow in cool coastal waters where sunlight can reach down to the rocky sea floor. Giant kelp is one of the world's fastest growing plants, growing as much as 300 feet in a single year. When the kelp reaches the surface of the ocean it continues to grow until it forms floating mats on the surface. Like a forest on land, a kelp forest is full of life. It provides shelter and protection for many animals. A myriad of fish, invertebrates, algae, marine birds and marine mammals find comfortable homes and shelters within the kelp, protected from the ravages of the inhospitable ocean.
