Do You Care About Kelp Forests? Take 5 Minutes on Our Survey
Sunflower stars

If you're a diver, surfer, ocean kayaker or just an observant ocean lover, you've seen kelp forests shrinking and in many cases disappearing altogether. Kelp forests are home to over 1,000 different species, more than any other ecosystem in California.

The state is working to formulate policy on how to respond to this ecological disaster. Marc Shargel is helping them, and the state wants your opinion. Please do a short survey here
(just 10 questions, mostly multiple choice).

"I've seen a lot of changes in Central California's ocean since I began diving here in 1978. I first took a camera underwater in 1982. Since then I've been using images to communicate the beauty and fragility of our marine life to people who might otherwise never know about it."
