In this episode we speak with Francesca Koe, Board Member of the Greater Farallones Association of California. She’ll talk about how she became a dive instructor and free diver and her love of the kelp forest that got her nicknamed ‘Kelp princess.’ Unfortunately kelp is the new coral in terms of being endangered. With 95 percent of northern California’s kelp forest gone Francesca is now playing a central role in efforts to restore it, and shares the who, what, when and why with us.
