The Sargassum Belt is a floating rainforest that is home to a variety of plant and animal life

The Great Atlantic Sargassum Belt, also known as the Sargassum Sea, is one of the greatest natural wonders on Earth, and it's right off our shores in the North Atlantic Ocean! 

These areas are home to an incredible diversity of marine life and provide abundant food and shelter to myriad species, including many that are economically important to humans. 

Without the protection of this floating rainforest, many marine species would be devastated by human impacts such as overfishing, pollution, oil spills, habitat destruction, and climate change.
