FactoidHeadline It's Best for Ecosystem Health to Leave Kelp on the Beach  +
FactoidText "...kelp that washes in and forms a wrack "...kelp that washes in and forms a wrack line at the highest tideline on shore is a resource for invertebrates that are eaten by shorebirds year round. In fall migrating birds such as the black-bellied plovers feed in these areas as they move along the Pacific Flyway towards Mexico and Central America. The invertebrates break down the kelp and remove it from shore by recycling it into the food chain. Leaving some kelp on the beach year round will encourage a stable population of these helpful invertebrates." - excerpt from an email from Dr. Karen Martin of Pepperdine University.Dr. Karen Martin of Pepperdine University.  +
