Walking under the Rocks

Come join us and become a ‘citizen scientist’!

Everyone knows dolphins, whales and sharks. But very few realise the unique combination of living organisms under our feet on our coastline. These intertidal ecosystems have huge impact on subsistence provisioning and on ecotourism. But there is not much local knowledge about the intertidal organisms – the species that live between the two tide levels.

Oceans Research and the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve invite you to a series of beach workshops where you will learn how to recognize, appreciate and conserve these important creatures.

  • Saturday 4th June – Still Bay – meet us at 09h00 at the harbour parking
  • Saturday 18th June – Tergniet – meet us at 09h00 at the tidal pool parking
  • Saturday 16th July – Mossel Bay – meet us at 09h00 at Mossel Bay Point
