Listen to Pelagornis, Spider Crabs, The Great Southern Reef In Print44:1318 June 2023

Ben Francischelli brings news of discovery: a wing bone of local ancient dino-bird ‘Pelagornis’, discovered by expert local diver Steven Kuiter; Whale migration has commenced, and with it, whale watching. We catch up with Dave Donnelly from the Dolphin Research Institute for his first fortnightly update across the whale migration season; Dr Elodie Camprasse brings us the report we’ve all been waiting for – Deakin University’s 12 month study: ‘Giant Spider Crab Ecological Assessment in Port Phillip Bay’; We are delighted this week to speak with Mick Sowry, Creative Director of 'Great Ocean Quarterly', about his team’s brand-new printed homage to the Great Southern Reef.

With Presenters Bron Burton and Cabin Boy.
