    • There are also forests of sea water

    • Kelp can also reproduce by way of spores. A single plant can produce trillions of spores each year
  • 6. Plants and Animals.
    • Millions of plants and animals live in the kelp forest. There is everything from whales, that go into the kelp forest to hide, to the playful Sea Otter, that wraps itself in kelp so it won't float away while it sleeps
