#fbf to that drifted mass of #macroalage . Can you identify it? It’s Macrocystis of course! Drift Macrocystis helps support the wrack community. Beach hoppers rejoice when new drift masses wash ashore. #intertidal #beacombing #oregoncoast #seaweed #wrackline
The wrack line is back to natural, organic materials and I’ve never been happier to see it. #wrackline #hightide #beach #noplastic #marine #cleanseas #waves #ocean #coast #islandlife #saynotosingleuse #saveouroceans #phuket #thailand
"Little Bird" - Made after Superstorm Sandy. I came upon a house that was half swallowed by the sea. As I wandered around the abandoned property I found a little white plastic bird. It was one of those decorative birds you see in flower arrangements, except devoid of any feathers. New feathers made from red cloth found that day, old foam for snow, and sea glass for ice. #seaglass #sculpture #art #birds #treasure #trashart #wrackline #abandoned
Syringes, deodorant, shotgun shell, marker, shampoo, solo cups, liquor bottle, shoes, hanger, expended polystyrene foam (EPS), bottle caps, plastic cutlery, fragmented plastic, straws, and a lighter. • This debris load came in on the high tide as usual. Its a perfect mix from cruise ship influence, poor beach etiquette, lost or abandoned fishing gear, debris from port everglades and from across the oceans. • Somethings are harder to identify it’s source than others, which makes managing them quite difficult. Which items do you think came from where? How was it used? How long have they been at sea? Or how long has it been on this beach? How can we prevent it from making its way into the ocean? • #discuss and let’s see what we can all do to help • #moseascleanseas #marinedebris #wrackline #thankscruiseships #moseas #lighter #bottlecaps #marinedebrisawareness #beachwalk #wracklinetreasures #cleanup #2minutebeachclean #take3forthesea #take4sea2shore #onepieceplan #syringe #shotgunshell #foam #plasticfork #thoushallnotsuck #haveyoulostyourshoe
It’s not uncommon to see kelp washed up on the beach here in SoCal. And just as important above water as it is underwater. .🌿. The line of kelp or other vegetation is called the “wrack line” onshore, and has an important role to play in our coastal ecosystem. The wrack serves as erosion control, catching sand as waves wash over it and wind blows sand around. Beach building!!! .🛠🔩🔧. Washed up kelp also provides an excellent foraging spot for shorebirds. Those gross kelp flies are actually bird delicacies, and are a favorite food of many migrating birds. .🌊💙🕊. Basically, kelp rocks 🤟🏻🎸

Happy #worldoceansday . "Floating" - a sculpture I made from beach trash. The pink tops are a Whoopi cushion I found, the tentacles are a cheerleader pom-pom, the grass is vinyl siding and the fish is a lure. About 2 ft tall. #beachart #trashart #wrackline #treasure #beachtreasures #sculpture #art

Tiny #papernautilus shell from the #wrackline I found right next to the baby turtle.
This little cutie was at the #wrackline this morning most likely washed to the beach in the storm water from all the rain we’ve been having. Also found a tiny paper nautilus shell. Took the little turtle to the Spanish river library pond , which is where fresh water turtles should be! #hatchling #babyturtle #beachcomber

MERMAID MONEY🧜🏻‍♀️🧜🏻‍♀️🐚💰Hey you guys I just got back from the beach ..you are not gonna believe this... way up in the wrack line we’re piiiiiiiles of sand dollars a direct result from Red Tide for sure(a natural occurring algae bloom that is in the Gulf water) which effects the nervous system of fish and marine line - and causes humans to cough uncontrollably 😂🗣it’s so bizarre. I waited about 10 days to go to the beach because I knew it would be bad . When I went there were lots of dead fish 🐠😐and I line of sand dollars way up high on the beach!! We had very high on shore winds that made it worse. #redtide #naturaloccurrence #deadfish #coughing #wateringeyes #bonitaspringsfl #wrackline #sanddollars #mermaidloot #instavideos #mermaid #mermaidmoney #beachcomber #beachcoming #florida #floridathing #gulfofmexico #shells
Swipe to see more pics of the wrack and shell piles. There was a shell line (pic #3 ) that was thousands of common periwinkles. * #webbmemorialstatepark #shells #shelling #seashells #beachcombing #beachcomber #massbeachcombing #seaweed #wrack #wrackline
The wrack was awesome today at Webb Memorial State Park. Lots of seaweed and shells. * #webbmemorialstatepark #shells #shelling #seashells #beachcombing #beachcomber #massbeachcombing #seaweed #wrack #wrackline
Lots of great #beachfinds and #wildlife on yesterday's outreach program. #birdsofprey #echinoderms #wrackline #outdooreducation
Wrack at South Cape Beach, Cape Cod. This beach was covered with spider crab carapaces and other parts, stacked slipper snails and seaweed. I am not squeamish normally, but live spider crabs creep me out. #mashpee #southcapebeach #southcapebeachstatepark #shelling #seashells #shells #beachcombing #beachcomber #massbeachcombing #wrack #wrackline #capecod
For #flashbackfriday a regurgitated pellet left on the beach by a gull. It’s a bit crumbled now from my probing and it’s been kissed by the swash. Do you know what all the little shells are? They are plates from the capitulum of the goose-neck barnacle, Pollicipes polymerus. Thrown by the orangish color of the shells? Barnacles are crustaceans, which tend to turn bright orange when cooked, or swallowed whole, apparently. #intertidal #oregoncoast #driftline #tideline #wrackline #strandline

Wrack line at Wood Neck Beach, Falmouth, Massachusetts. Lots of small goodies, including egg cockles, jingles, oyster drills, common periwinkles, slipper shells and a yellow bay scallop. #woodneckbeach #shelling #shells #seashells #beachcombing #beachcomber #massbeachcombing #wrack #wrackline
This Valella valella jellyfish sails by the wind on the open ocean. Despite being adapted to the winds, this sailor species can get caught up in wind currents and wash ashore. Their beautiful blue color is a splendor to see in the wrack line. #zoesnaturefiles #valellavalella . . . #wrackline #hightide #lowtide #jellyfish #naturephotography #oregoncoast #beachcombing #nofilter

This blue boot’s been adrift a while. It’s got the hitchhikers to prove it. The inside was packed with barnacles like the ones on the sole. #wrackline #driftline #tideline #strandline #intertidal #oregoncoast
It’s a turtle shell. It’s a stingray. These are things I’ve overheard parents telling their children when they see these on the beach. Oh! Don’t touch it. It will sting you. 🤪 #horseshoe crab #harmless #seacritter #wildlife #nature #onthebeach #fromtheocean #blueblooded #sanibel #wrackline #swfl
Shelling today on Kalmus Beach at low tide. Hyannis, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Pictured are live slipper shells attached to bay scallops. #kalmusbeach #shelling #seashells #shells #beachcombing #beachcomber #massbeachcombing #wrack #scallops #wrackline #bayscallop #scallopshell #argopectenirradians
It's looking quite seasonal at Webb State Park. Lots of leaves, pine cones and acorns on the beach on Sunday. #webbmemorialstatepark #shelling #seashells #shells #beachcomber #beachcombing #massbeachcombing #wrack #crabcarapace #wrackline

European flat oyster in the wrack at Webb State Park. Yes, indeed, this type of oyster is found in Boston Harbor. #webbmemorialstatepark #shelling #seashells #shells #beachcomber #beachcombing #massbeachcombing #oystershell #wrack #wrackline #europeanflatoyster
The wrack on Sandy Neck Beach, Cape Cod, MA: there were skate egg cases everywhere (aka mermaid's purse). Also pictured, a vertebra! #sandyneckbeach #shelling #shells #seashells #beachcombing #beachcomber #massbeachcombing #wrack #wrackline
