Rock Pool Life in summer

 13 January 2019

Rock Pool Life

Summer is a great time to explore the rocky shores of our region. Rock pools and crevasses are home to many marine species. They can also provide a temporary refuge during wild seas, or be a trap as the tide recedes. For the observer, such pools provide an easily accessible window into the marine environment.

During January and February, we encourage you to record your sightings of rock pool life. The annual Sea Slug Census is also on during January - even more reason to take your camera and explore your part of the Atlas of Life coastline.
