Octopuses give tidepooling a leg up

Posted: Friday, July 12, 2019 9:15 am

KODIAK — If you would like to explore the lively tide pools here on Kodiak, come join me, naturalist intern Nora Weisz, for a child friendly experience or a more in-depth look at tide pools at 10:30 a.m. Friday.

Since my arrival on the island, I have had multiple conversations about the intertidal octopuses of Kodiak; I was told that one could find these creatures while tidepooling. As I went out myself to explore the intertidal zone, I looked and looked, but to no avail. I began to think that perhaps these sea creatures were not as common as I had been told.
