willowandfern ️Did You Know?️The giant kelp forests off the Southern California coast can grow up to 2 feet/day if the nutrients and water conditions are just right. 2 FEET per DAY!! Wow!! Giant Kelp grow on rocky areas in the water between 6-90 feet. The giant kelp do not have roots but rather anchors aka "holdfasts" that keep them in place. Amazing! #willowandfernco #willowandfern #didyouknow #kelpforest #activefamilies #naturebasedapparel 5min

krystianscience Feeding time! #Repost @montereybayaquarium ・・・
Ever served lunch underwater? Our volunteer divers do every day! Speedy schools of anchovies are fed krill at the surface, leaving out slower fish in the lower levels of our 28-foot tall Kelp Forest exhibit. It's up to our divers to descend to the rocky bottom and deliver a fishy feast—and if you're lucky, a leopard shark might stop by for a snack! #scubadiverslife #kelpforest #montereybayaquarium 15h
