It must be a sign!

Posted by Jody on May 9, 2012

Protecting tide pool creatures and their environment is serious business on the coast of Southern California. How serious? Well, I didn’t even see any evidence of a tide pool area anywhere near this sign posted on the sandy beach in front of the Hotel del Coronado!

Coronado, California

The sign reads: “PROTECT TIDEPOOL AREA. Please do not remove or disturb sea life, shells or rocks. Thank you.”

Cabrillo National Monument, California

The sign pictured above was purposefully placed to warn everyone on the path approaching the tide pools at Cabrillo National Monument near San Diego, California. Note that even the sand is protected by federal law here!

La Jolla, California

La Jolla has many wonderful tide pooling areas up and down the coast. The La Jolla Underwater Park is a protected State Marine Conservation Area. The signs are quite specific here, and “Look, Don’t Touch” sums it all up perfectly!

Have a great day tide pooling, beachcombing or just chillin’ out at the shore!
