Discover the wealth of marine wildlife in rockpools, in a guided exploration
Children love rockpools, and there’s a chance for them to explore those fascinating, unique marine habitats in Sidmouth on Tuesday, August 14.
The Countryside team from East Devon District Council will be leading a Rockpool Ramble, in which children can expect to see shrimps, prawns, different species of crab, limpets, cockles, mussels and fish.
Education ranger Meg Knowles said: “If they are very lucky, they may even see a starfish. We can pick it up and put it gently on the child’s hand – that’s really inspiring.”
She said the team are very careful not to harm any of the sea creatures or damage their habitats during the exploration.
