Show Respect for Seashore Creatures

  • Tread carefully.
  • Leave creatures where you found them.
  • Leave attached seaweed in place.
  • Handle creatures with care – close to the ground with wet hands.
  • Carefully put rocks back to the same position you found them.
  • Limit your collection of empty shells as other creatures use them as homes.


Avoid Disturbing Wildlife

  • Keep your distance from seabirds including penguins.
  • Keep your distance from seals and sea lions.
  • Use the zoom on your camera or binoculars for close viewing.
  • If sea lions approach you – back away slowly.
  • Keep dogs under control.


Be Careful and Keep Safe

  • Check tide times to avoid being cut off by rising tide.
  • Do not explore the seashore alone.
  • Watch for changing weather.
  • Look out for waves – never turn your back to the ocean.
  • Beware of slippery and uneven rock surfaces.
  • Pick up any rubbish found on the shore and dispose of it appropriately.
