Labrador has representatives of several major intertidal ecosystems:
natural rocky shore, seagrass areas, coral rubble and coral
reefs. Despite heavy impact as the last mainland reef and natural
rocky shore, Labrador's shore remains rich.
The natural rocky shore has interesting
plants and animals typical of this habitat, especially
at very low tide.
The coral rubble area also teems with
life: seaweeds, fishes and other creatures.
There are many large corals at the reef
edge which shelter some interesting animals.
Labrador has seagrass meadows and
is among the few shores with a thick bed of Sickle seagrasses.
These are not common even on Chek Jawa. Other kinds of seagrasses
are also found elsewhere on the shore.
