Shore Buddies Wisdom Wednesday
The ocean is filled to the brim with interesting creatures who live mysterious lives down below! Kelp forests are themselves alluring; green and swaying in the water, they give off a magical appearance. In fact, it is said that kelp can grow 18 inches in one day. Kelp is considered to be one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Now that sounds like something out of a fairytale! Kelp forests provide food and shelter for seals, sea otters, and various shore birds. This plant may be magical looking, but its importance to the ecosystem is very real.
