We are fortunate in South Australia to be surrounded by beautiful marine and coastal environments.

These unique natural areas provide important habitats for our amazing marine life, as well as memorable experiences and rich learning activities for us.

There are many resources available to help us understand these environments and how to protect them.

The rock pool is here to point you in the right direction.
