Rockpools

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

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!
