Rockpools

Rockpools are amazing micro-habitats full of incredible creatures! Are you brave enough to stroke a Sea Anemone, Starfish or Crab? Find out during your visit!

Rockpools are made from water left behind when the tide goes out. Lots of different creatures live in these shallow pools – they all need to be tough to adapt to different temperatures and waves crashing overhead!

 

If you’re exploring Rockpools at the beach, remember these important rules:

• Safety first: Make sure you’re with an adult and only explore when the tide is going out. Wear non-slip shoes.

• Be kind to creatures: Put any rocks back carefully and try not to the disturb creatures you find. Never take them home with you!
