The West LA/Malibu Chapter is thrilled to announce the installation of an interpretive tidepool sign at Leo Carrillo State Beach. The purpose of the signs is to educate visitors on how to be responsible "tidepoolers." The sign encourages people to enjoy the tidepools, but to step carefully, never turn over rocks, do not pick up the animals, and never take animals from the tidepools. The tidepooler rules are in both english and spanish.
In 2007 the Chapter's Tidepool Protection Program will be reaching out to various surf camps in Malibu, such as the Malibu Makos, to teach young surfers the importance of the tidepools and what they tell us about the state of the ocean and beach.
