What the tide brings in
On beaches, we often see long strings of algae and things that wash up on shore. Things the tide brings in contribute significantly to shorelines’ natural richness.
When it decomposes, all of this organic matter enriches the soil and enables many plants to grow.
Furthermore, diverse wildlife species—worms, molluscs, crustaceans and insects—help clean the beach and serve as food for various predators.
