Kelp Forests (Student Example)

Kelp forests are located off the coast of California. They look like forest because the kelp grows really tall. It can grow about 4 inches a day. Many different animals live in the kelp forests. Sea Bats and Urchin eat the kelp.
While Sea Otters eat the urchin and other shell fish that live in the kelp. It is a thriving echo system just off the coast.  I learned that sometimes great white sharks go looking for food in kelp forests.
There are aquariums that have live video feeds of kelp forests.Kelp Forest Cam My favorite kelp forest animal is the Sea Otters, because they are mammals who float in the water and wrap themselves up in kelp so they won't float away.
