Creatures of the Rockpools

Rockpools are teeming with life

Rockpools are amazing micro-habitats full of incredible creatures! Are you brave enough to pet a giant pink sea star, anemone or prawn at our Interactive Touchpool Exhibit?

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

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!
