Episode 23: Coastal Ecosystems Are Struggling Too ~ Airing July 31st & August 1st

This weekend's episode will take us somewhere we have not yet explored during Living Downstream - the coast! Episode 23 focuses on a type of ocean ecosystem called a "kelp forest", and some of its inhabitants. Various factors are transforming these aquatic systems into urchin barrens, which are unsuitable habitats for otters and other species. Hear from The Elakha Alliance's Bob Bailey and Tom Calvanese of the Oregon Kelp Alliance to hear what diverse groups of stakeholders are doing to help Oregon's sea otters, and the kelp forests they need to survive.
