    • Life Sciences

Hey everyone! This next series of Petri Dish is about Kelp, due to strong demand from Nathan. Kelp are those big floaty plant-looking things (but they aren't plants, technically)! This episode, we dive into natural kelp forests and how they're both environmentally great and also at risk of shrinkage. In future episodes we'll cover kelp farming and the fun uses of kelp!
