The Challenge’s aim is to restore one million hectares of lost kelp forest by 2040 and protect three million hectares of kelp forest by the same year. This Challenge and the Launch were done in coordination and with support from the IUCN, The UN Decade for Ecosystem Restoration, and the UN Decade for Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The Kelp Conservation Summit on February 19th was attended by 80 people from 21 countries and six continents.
