The tide pools are home to hundreds of sea creatures, be a considerate visitor and don’t pick them up, don’t move their furniture (in the form of rocks and shells), don’t transport them to a bucket or another location because it can kill them. The local tide pools have thousands of visitors each year and you need to be protective of these gentle creatures.
