Tide Pool Bioblitzes

The King Tides are a great time to explore tide pools. Connect with nature, explore the beach, and support science. Citizen scientists will document tide pool wildlife up as part of a bioblitz (a volunteer-powered nature survey). This bioblitz runs from Jan 18 thru Jan 23, 2019 all along the California Coastal Waters.

June 4, 2020: COVID-19 UPDATE:

Due to public health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19, Ocean Sanctuaries will not be promoting or participating in the annual Snap Shot Cal Coast ‘bioblitz’ sponsored by the California Academy of Sciences.
