Here is a short video to give you a taster of the marine ecosystems and the inhabitants in the area of False Bay which Cape RADD biologists and student scientists explore and run the research projects in. These kelp forests, also known as the ‘African sea forests’ are beautiful 3 dimensional spaces which make diving and working in them so special. Take a moment and escape into the blue with us.
