symbiotic relationship

Seashore Conservation

“When investigating a seashore it is important to remember that the welfare of the plants and animals must come first. If seaweeds are attached to rocks do not try to pull them off, just examine them where they are growing. Handle animals with great care, returning them to the place where they were found.Anemones and limpets are normally firmly stuck to rocks and any attempt to remove them may result in their death. Replace any large stones that are removed – animals that live on the underside soon die if left exposed.”
