Hawaiian Shallow Reef Animals
Design your own Christmas tree shirt using shells and sea stars.
These two cute Porcupine Fish were found during our spring reef walks in shallow water.

We're having such a great time with finding Hawaiian reef animals during our reef walk programs that we decided to make a little feature about it.


Hawaii's shallow water reefs are not as barren as they sometimes seem. There are many different environments that can be explored without actual swimming.Think about habitats with rocky shores, sandy bottoms, muddy flats, sea weed havens. All these habitats support their own set of creatures ranging from porcupine fish, moray eels, trigger fish, octopi, box crabs, anemone hermit crabs, and box fish.

 

Reef Walks are offered monthly. Registration is required.
