Dont Touch my Starfish! When visiting the tide-pools on the Central Coast, try to avoid taking the wildlife home with you. My wife and I were visiting the Dinosaur Caves last month and we noticed a tourist had carried a beautiful starfish about the size of my large head away from its home. I cant tell you how it pains me to have to police my own beaches, but its in your best interest. Aside from being illegal to remove from the beach, the more starfish, crabs, pelicans, and wildlife we keep attracts more tourists, improves the economy, and makes life on the beach more enjoyable for everyone.
