At first glance, the ocean shoreline appears as a great expanse of beach, water and sky. Look closer – as the water recedes to low tide, an amazing world of fantastical creatures awaits your discovery. Tidepools are home to an extraordinary diversity of life arising from the need to survive this ever-changing and sometimes harsh environment. Let the Tidepool Twitcher be your guide to exploration and discover of the animals and seaweeds of the Pacific Northwest intertidal zone.
