Salt marshes, mangroves, rocky intertidal, as well as other coastal ecosystems are habitats for species of many different life forms. The diversity of life makes coastal ecosystems not only ideal systems for ecological research but also hotspots of human-nature interactions. The following are a few of those we study or just captured in my camera (non-professional though). More will come soon!
