Bron and Kade catch up with Hilary McNevin about next weekend’s Apollo Bay Seafood Festival, 3 days of celebrating Victoria’s greatest marine produce surrounded by the stunning sea view backdrop of the Great Ocean Road region. Hilary will also talk up the Festival 'Conversations' on Sunday 16 February, an exploration of the hot button issues that affect both the ocean and land with a sensational lineup of panellists.
Jacqui Younger tells us about next weekend’s underwater clean up event at Mordialloc Pier, plus a fantastic dive trip over Labour Day weekend to the Sapphire Coast – Merimbula, Bermagui, Eden – perfect way for our diving community to support people on the NSW South Coast and see their spectacular underwater environments at the same time.
Then it’s time to catch up on the Fight for the Bight. Lots has happened since we went on summer break, including Federal Government agency NOPSEMA’s granting environmental approval for Equinor’s plans to drill in the Bight. We’ll we speak with Wilderness Society Director Peter Owen about what this approval means, and Wilderness Society’s submission to launch a legal challenge to NOPSEMA’s decision in the Federal Court.
And Kade will discuss the use of sound to restore reefs.
Big show! Hope you can join us.
