An inspiration:

At the end of last year, we received this wonderful poem from Billy and it has inspired us to launch a monthly rock pool art and literature competition for kids! To say thanks to Billy, we have sent him a free Rock Pool Project t shirt! We will now be awarding a t shirt every month for our favourite rock pool art! Click the link below to find out more about this competition.

Billy’s poem:

There is a fish that lives in the sea, who hasn’t got legs like me. They like to hide, beyond the tide and they’re beautiful don’t you agree. He is the alien of the sea, because he isn’t the creature you’d expect him to be. He can live in any habitat, even at 9,000 metres deep and can turn his stomach inside out to make room for his tea. He has eyes in his legs and eats with its bum. Then pulls off a leg and grows a new one. He is my favourite animal, but can you guess which one?” – Billy aged 7

St Piran’s hermit crab

Our second species in focus features probably the most popular new arrival to our shores in recent years. Well certainly in Cornwall anyway, where this charming little crab is named after the region’s patron saint: St Piran.

RPP intern: Katie Waddington

Katie Waddington is a wildlife photographer that will be capturing the fascinating species she can find in rock pools around Cornwall using the amazing ‘Meet Your Neighbours’ style. Find out more about her and this exciting project!
