GSI Outdoors and its partner brands share a stewardship for our environment with responsible manufacturing and products born of a love for the outdoors. In support of these important sustainability initiatives, GSI Outdoors has partnered with SeaTrees during Earth month to raise awareness for the La Jolla Kelp Restoration Initiative.

The La Jolla Kelp Restoration Initiative

The giant kelp forests of La Jolla, CA and nearby areas in San Diego have declined by up to 90% since a marine heatwave in 2014-2015 wiped them out, and have not yet re-grown despite water temperatures having returned to normal.

To solve this problem, SeaTrees is working with scientists at UC San Diego Scripps Institution of Oceanography to conduct scientific research on the best methods to restore the kelp forests of La Jolla and San Diego County. This project will inform future kelp restoration efforts to more quickly identify both problems and solutions for other lost kelp forests in Southern California.
