Abstract

Operation Crayweed focuses on the restoration of underwater forests that disappeared from the coastline of Sydney, Australia's largest city, 40 years previously. We show how a combination of science, hands-on restoration, community engagement and art has helped the project to reach its goals as well as raise awareness about the importance of underwater kelp forests that are experiencing global decline.
