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

Atlantic Bobtail Squid

The Atlantic bobtail squid (Sepiola atlantica) is truly a hidden gem of the rocky shore. These camouflage wizards are so easy to overlook that they are usually only spotted when accidentally disturbed, spending much of their time buried in the sand with only their eyes peeking out.

Beadlet Anemone

The beadlet anemone (Actinia equina) are red anemones found on rocky shores all over UK coastlines.

Sea Hare

With their bunny-like head tentacles and charismatic expressions, these marvelous molluscs are always sure to bring a smile to your rock pool adventures.
