Introducing “The Mysterious World of Bull Kelp”

Reef Check is delighted to share an incredible new site that celebrates the wonder of bull kelp and the biodiversity it supports: The Mysterious World of Bull Kelp, presented by Above/Below. This webstory is more than a website, it’s like a digital book that explores the “forests below” through artistic illustrations, compelling photography, lyrical essays, historical and contemporary kelp maps, and scientific diagrams to take you on a deep dive into the world of bull kelp forests. This project is the brainchild of co-directors Josie Iselin and Marianna Leuschel and is the centerpiece of a larger ocean literacy campaign that aims to raise awareness about kelp forests. Stay tuned for more from Above/Below, and in the meantime you can check out some of Josie Iselin’s art in our Reef Check online store.
