About this book

The Coastal Guide of South Africa is a basic guide to the coastline's biodiversity, from dune to ocean, developed in order to offer beach enthusiasts, holidaymakers and recreational anglers a simple guide for identifying the plants and animals most frequently or commonly seen or caught along South Africa's coastline. Although it does not cover all the species, it is a good introduction for those people who would like to begin to identify and understand some of the coastal life we come into contact with while using the beach.

It is also hoped that this guide will create an awareness and appreciation of the diverse and contrasting biodiversity found on the rich and beautiful coast, including background information on tides, habitats and coastlines.
