In his April chapter of Cabin Boy Diaries, Brett talks about the Plimsoll Line, a vessel marking which has saved thousands of sailors from a watery grave, and has had some controversy to make it legislation.

We'll catch up with Mark Rodrigue from Parks Victoria about some plans coming up for this year's 'Sharing the Love' gathering of coastal community advocates from all over Victoria.

We’ll speak with James Rule from Monash University and Museum Victoria about an amazing discovery made back in 1998 by a beachcomber in Portland - an interesting looking find turned out to be an ancient seal tooth that has changed our understanding of how seals evolved in southern Australia, and what might lie ahead if sea levels rise.

And Fam looks at how to stay connected to the ocean when you’re in lockdown.
