ast week, Dr Erich Fitzgerald from Museum Victoria spoke about the uniquely precious marine fossil record along the Beaumaris coastline - if you didn't catch the show. Erich brought some extraordinary information - the site is Australia's best snapshot of marine life 25 million years ago, and 85% of Australia's seal fossils on record are located in this site alone! The whole site is currently under threat by proposals to develop a 120 berth marina, breakwall and outfall, and the rproposal has moved forward to consideration under an Environment Effects Statement. To explore the issues and campaign to have the site saved from destruction, we'll be joined by Sandringham Foreshore Association's Helen Gibson and Professor Tim Flannery.
Then Jeff brings us a coastal classic - our only clue - John Carradine and a diving bell.
