This week, Bron and Kade don the virtual mask and snorkel and go exploring…
• Baykeeper Neil Blake talks up the concept of a rapid response community taskforce to report and remove newly arrived pest species like Asian Shore Crabs, and existing established pests like Northern Pacific Seastars.
• Shannon Hurley from the Victorian National Parks Association brings us this week’s report on the spider crabs – has this week’s blood moon brought them in? And if it has, are Victoria’s 5km restrictions going to offer them some unexpected protection this season?
• We speak with author, scriptwriter and mentor Kathryn Heyman about' 'Fury', her powerful story of how her experiences working as a deckhand on a fishing trawler in the Timor Sea led to a transformation from a dark history to a new life.
• And Dr Jacqui Pocklington, Coastcare Co-ordinator, joins us to talk through the latest round of community grants up for grabs, and how you and your community group can go about applying for one.
