Bron and Kade talk Baykeeping with Neil Blake, Ocean Literacy with Dr Prue Francis, and the history of diving with Maynard...Jeff Maynard.

• Baykeeper Neil Blake talks about the ‘City Nature Challenge’, a program that aims to see which city can submit the most observations of native fauna. Neil also takes a look at different models of citizen science, and possible improvements in current methods used by citizen scientists.

• Dr Prue Francis (Deakin University) talks Ocean Literacy, continuing our conversation about the ‘Blue Curriculum’ and the support teachers need, the use of children’s books to introduce marine science to the classroom, and plans for some upcoming workshops for teachers.

• And Jeff Maynard continues to go deeper into the history of diving using nothing but his wits, charm and James Bond movies. This month Jeff explores 17th century diving methods with Pierce Brosnan as 007.
