Join EMS guides, Marine Janine, and guest citizen scientists for a rock pool search and photography session on the intertidal reef at northern O’Sullivan Beach, towards the Port Stanvac fence line. The area is home to a wide variety of sea slugs, snails, chitons, keyhole limpets, and many other marine invertebrates. The rock pool search provides an opportunity for attendees to put their slug- and snail-finding and photography skills into practice. Please bring a waterproof camera or splashproof phone if you have one. A limited number of waterproof cameras will be available for loan on the day.
