Most beaches are found on the coast, where wave action, currents, tides and seawater rises continuously rework and shape the sediment. As a result, beaches are usually regarded as dynamic, natural phenomenon. Because of this, a beach is not an ideal place for most animals to live due to its constantly changing environment. Crabs and insects live in the sands while sea turtles bury their eggs on sandy beaches. Within one human lifetime, beach shorelines can grow or shrink by 10s of feet due to the action of waves, wind, storms, floods and other weather extremes.
