Description: This project is focused on using data science and conservation decision making to inform kelp restoration efforts. The key component is a kelp (orders Laminariales, Fucales, Desmarestiales) restoration database which synthesizes past restoration efforts and tell us, among other things: - How successful attempts have been - How costly - What factors lead to success or failure - What is being done - Where is it located - What motivates people This work includes published, non-published, English, and Non-English literature and sources. See README for further information The project will create a living database for future restoration efforts to be added to and we will create a guidebook for the best practices in kelp reforestation based up the results. It is a highly collaborative effort and anyone is welcome to contribute, the main goal is to connect people with the required data and improve our chances of restoring kelp forests.
