Kelp forest and fish

Kelp restoration in Santa Monica Bay with The Bay Foundation

The kelp forest ecosystems off the southern California coast are known to be some of the most diverse and productive ecosystems in the world. They are vital for providing habitat and food for over 700 marine species and protect neighbouring coastlines from erosion and pull in carbon dioxide from the ocean as they grow. Globally, kelp forests have been lost to sea urchins, which in great numbers consume and prevent the recovery of kelps. The Bay Foundation restores these kelp forests with teams of SCUBA divers. Kelp forests that have been lost for decades return to health within months of their efforts. Restoring kelp forests feeds humanity, provides for wildlife, and counters climate change.

Forest and stream in the Andes

Forest conservation for biodiversity and climate with Art into Acres

This project supports the conservation of 53,375 acres (21,600 hectares) of old-growth forest. The biodiverse landscape is a migration corridor and home to the Mountain tapir, Spectacled Bear, Bush Dog, Mountain Paca and Stumped Tailed Porcupine. In collaboration with Art to Acres, the funds raised will support local communities in conserving the lands on which they have historically lived. Art to Acres is an artist-founded, non-profit environmental initiative that partners with the cultural community for intersectional conversation and large-scale land conservation support. To date, the initiative has supported 32 million acres of new locally-led permanent protected areas and 814,203,000 tonnes of protected underground carbon.
