Canopy Blue: Your Gateway to Ocean Conservation

April 28, 2024

In an exciting leap forward for ocean conservation and climate action, PocketSeed is excited to team up with Canopy Blue, a visionary force in the hyperscale restoration of our oceans. Together, we're turning the tide on climate change with an innovative offering that's as impactful as it is urgent: Kelp Restoration Credits.

A Wave of Change: The Kelp Restoration Initiative

The story begins in the aftermath of the devastating marine heatwave that hit Western Australia in 2011, destroying 97,438 hectares of crucial kelp forests and releasing over 310,000 tonnes of carbon into our atmosphere. Rising from this challenge, Canopy Blue, in collaboration with The University of Western Australia, has embarked on a mission of oceanic proportions to restore these vital underwater forests. Their goal? Harness the untapped blue carbon potential of kelp to foster a decarbonized, sustainable future for all.

Kelp Credits: Your way to Oceanic Impact

By welcoming Kelp Restoration Credits onto the PocketSeed platform, we're offering more than just a diverse carbon portfolio. We're inviting you to dive deep into direct climate action, making a tangible difference in the restoration of the Australian kelp ecosystem. This is your chance to be part of a movement that's not just about combating climate change but also about enriching marine biodiversity.

Innovation at Sea: A New Horizon for Marine Restoration

Canopy Blue's approach to kelp restoration is nothing short of revolutionary. By blending expert knowledge in marine biology with cutting-edge restoration techniques, they're not just revitalizing kelp forests; they're setting a new standard for ocean conservation worldwide. This project is a testament to what we can achieve when innovation meets determination: a scalable, sustainable model for oceanic restoration.

The Mighty Kelp in Climate Action

Kelp forests are the oceans' answer to terrestrial tropical forests: rapidly regenerating ecosystems that serve as significant carbon sinks. These underwater jungles convert CO2 into organic carbon, sequestering it in the deep ocean and playing a pivotal role in our fight against climate change. By restoring these forests, we're not just tackling CO2 emissions; we're fostering a rich habitat for marine life and protecting our planet's unique underwater biodiversity.

Stapled Credits: Doubling Down on Impact

In an innovative twist, Canopy Blue's Kelp Restoration Credits offer a dual benefit: each credit represents not just the planting of kelp but also the offset of one tonne of CO2. This approach ensures that your contribution has a double impact, supporting both marine biodiversity and direct carbon offsetting efforts.
