Voyages of the tohorā
southern right whale

This sentinel species for climate change was once decimated by whaling. These now recovering gentle giants face a new threat, the changing ocean.

Restoring Flourishing Coastal Ecosystems

Kelp is vital for ocean ecosystems to flourish, creating habitats for marine life and is hugely efficient at fixing carbon. However, many coastlines which were once home to vast forests of kelp, now lie bare, thriving reef ecosystems replaced by kina (sea urchin) barrens.   

UNDERSTANDING
KELP + CARBON

Kelp forests provide important stores of carbon, yet the long-term fate of this carbon is unknown. Answering this question is crucial in order to understand the role of kelp forests in climate change mitigation, and to quantify and value blue carbon.
