Watch the videos and try to fill out the survey data sheet with the % coverage of seaweed and estimate the numbers of each species of animal observed on this sandy shore in Dunedin. You can use this Southern Sandy and Muddy Shore Guide to help you identify which species you’ve found.

While doing this activity think about the following:

  • Describe what was easy or hard about doing the Marine Metre² survey.
  • How does your local shore differ?
