This event has passed Get tickets

Event description


Are you an ocean lover or budding marine scientist?

Join Marine Biologists for a guided citizen science adventure in the intertidal reefs at Hallett Cove on Monday April 15. Intertidal reefs are covered at high tide and exposed at low tide, meaning you can explore them from land and water.

Participants under 16yo must be accompanied by an parent or caregiver. 

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.

This Reef Ramble will involve three activities...

  • You’ll learn to monitor all the critters that don’t move, like algae, tube worms and barnacles.
  • You’ll learn to monitor some of the common gastropod species, like limpets and abalone.
  • You'll 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: 11.30am at Heron Way Reserve (Hallett Cove) table & shelter.
