The Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, in particular, is the perfect location for kelp farms.

Kelp is a versatile algae, used as a food source, carbon store, medicine and craft material for centuries. However, despite their usefulness, kelp forests have declined significantly over the past five decades, owing to climate change, overexploitation and pollution.

In collaboration with Coastal Kelp, shíshálh, Tsleilwaututh, Squamish, Tla'amin First Nations and the Métis Nation BC, this project is restoring kelp forests in British Columbia to produce millions of Kelp Sporophytes that will help support climate action and life below water.
