Food Chain- Microalgae Top shell Starfish Shore Birds On Wednesday the 9th of March, Students from Sacred Heart College Travelled by Bus to Siren’s Rock’s which lies between Owhiro Bay and Island Bay. At Siren’s rocks we had to explore the rocks and collect data of all the different species we found at the rocky shore. The rocky shore is an intertidal place where solid rocks predominate. It is useful for the study of Organisms living on the rocky shore. The rocky shore consists of the low tide, mid tide, high tide and splash zones. we used quadrats to sample which species was located in these zones. Quadrats is a sampling method used to see which organisms are located in certain proportions. The species I have chosen to talk about in my report today is one type of Limpet and one type of Top Shell. The common name for the Limpet I found is the Golden/ Radiate Limpet of whose scientific name is Cellana Radians which was found in the lower intertidal zone. The common name for the species of top shell I found was actually just
