Popular rockpool ramble is back, and look what we found!

For a few days in January, Jess took part in Wattle Range Councils Coastal Connections Program running rockpool rambles at Beachport and estuary discoveries at South End, South Australia.

The popular program was welcomed back after a couple of years break, with the new sessions fully booked. The rockpool rambles at Glens Point in Beachport discovered a huge variety of species to look at, from different algae to crabs, swimming anemones and a visit from a couple of local southern eagle rays. Participants enjoyed discovering the rockpools and hearing interesting facts about the different species that were found.

The estuary discoveries at the Lake Frome Outlet, South End were attended by an eager group of participants. After learning about what an estuary is and why they are important habitat, participants enjoyed catching a variety of fish. The species caught included yellow eye mullet, tiny juvenile puffer fish, and a variety of shells.

Keep an eye out on our blogs, Facebook, Instagram, or get in touch to be kept in the loop for next year’s Coastal Connections Program, which is sure to be another interesting and fun-filled event!

This project is supported by the Wattle Range Council.
