Skills Lab: Underwater Invertebrate ID


Interested in upping your critter ID? Let’s spend a couple dives learning how to see the ocean environment differently. We’ll spend some time getting familiar with Reef Check California indicator species such as abalone, sea cucumbers, sea stars, crabs, anemones, and more before heading off to play underwater ID bingo!

Most invertebrates are relatively sedentary (they don’t move very much), allowing for us to spend time examining an area and finding all kinds of critters! Some invertebrates are exceptional at camouflage, and thus will be difficult to notice. Get your magnifying glasses ready!
