A World Without Kelp

Join a unique and engaging conversation between Professor Juliet Brodie, research leader at London’s Natural History Museum and a world expert on seaweed, and local marine scientist Ailsa McLellan, who works to raise awareness of the continued threat of kelp dredging around Scotland’s coastline.

Find out how seaweed plays a vital role for our ecosystems and coastlines, not just around the west of Scotland but across the world, and how valuable these ‘forests under the sea’ are for our future.
