This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Are you an ocean lover, marine enthusiast or citizen scientist?

Community Reef Rambles are back for the 2023/2024 summer season

Join Marine Biologists for a guided citizen science adventure in the intertidal reefs at Marino Rocks on Friday January 25. Intertidal reefs are covered at high tide and exposed at low tide, meaning you can explore them from land and water.

Get your feet wet while learning about our fascinating and unique rock pool flora and fauna!

There’s plenty to behold, including reef crabs, dog whelk (a predatory sea snail), intertidal tube worms, variegated limpets and the vivid waratah anemone.

Learn how to collect data like a bonafide scientist, record your findings on one of the biggest global citizen science platforms (Hello, iNaturalist!) and learn more about the wonders of the Great Southern Reef.

The Reef Ramble will involve two activities...

  • Explore the intertidal reefs of South Australia (part of the Great Southern Reef) with a guided tour by a Marine Biologist
  • Learn how to record and identify species using the iNaturalist app, one of the biggest global citizen science platforms.

Event duration: 90-120 minutes. 

Meet: at 11:30am near the beach entrance to Marino Rocks. Look for the carpark opposite Marino Rocks Social Cafe.
