Next time you head to the tidepools, bring your iPhone or iPad (waterproof case recommended). A new California Tidepool App is now available to answer your burning questions about intertidal life like, why are chitons so cool? –and– how long can sea urchins live? Much like a field guide, the App has photos, fun facts, and more. It is a great tool for teachers, LiMPETS student-scientists, and anyone who is curious about tidepool life on the California coast. Created by the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, UCSB Marine Science Institute, LiMPETS, and volunteers from Citrix Systems, Inc. Search for Tidepools in the Apple Store.
