The Intertidal Zone

Where land meets sea!

Life in the Tidal Pool

The intertidal zone is the area that is above water at low tide and under water at high tide. In order to survive here, the life here has adapted to living in both wet and dry conditions. This zone is the home to algae, sea stars, small crabs, and mussels.

Save the seaturtles!

Sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach areas, and when the babies hatch they must cross the intertidal zone. Human activity threatens their survival rates, so remember not to leave behind any trash and to fill in any holes in the sand after a fun day in the sun!
