Sun, sand, and surf: the same elements that offer rest and relaxation to visitors provide a challenge to the organisms that live here. Join marine biologist Brett Lear on a tour of Torrey Pines State Beach and meet some of the creatures that live between the bluffs and the waves and see how they’ve adapted to hot, dry sand, changing tide levels, and pounding surf. Discover how wrack (seaweed washed ashore) contributes to the coastal ecosytem by providing food and shelter to many animals.
