Rockpooling for teens
The Yorkshire coast is rich in wildlife and some areas have been recommended as a marine conservation zone. The scars that stretch for several hundred metres at low tide provide the ideal habitat for a wide range of seashore creatures and make this a great place to explore species distribution and diversification along the shore. No matter what the age, the seashore is just a great place to explore and is always full of surprises.
