Isn't it fun for the children to walk in low tides and find colourful marine species which they haven't seen before? For all those who think marine life can be only visible during scuba, a team of Visakhapatnam based startup-WildEd, in collaboration with East Coast Conservation Team (ECCT), is surprising children in the city with 'Intertidal Walks' in Visakhapatnam beach.
These intertidal walks near YMCA, Tenneti beach, and beach spots with low tides are to explore the different types of ecosystems. A small group of children and adults are taken to walk through the rocky shores of the beach. While exploring the species, they are educated, take photos, and keep a note of their exploration.
The teams teach the children about the importance of marine conservation and record flora and fauna of lesser-studied marine ecosystems from the region.
