Monterey Bay

Journey through the marine ecosystem of Monterey Bay, California, where a giant kelp forest hosts one of the most diverse marine ecologies in the world.

The secret to the balance of this ecosystem is a keystone species, the Sea Otter. The sea otter feeds on sea urchins and so keeps their numbers under control, preventing them from destroying the kelp habitat.
