Our speaker Dr Jan Watson is one of Victoria's 'Marine Treasures'. She will speak to us about the beautiful and delicate marine hydroids that we often overlook when we are diving and which she has studied for many years, but we can also talk to her about her long career as a marine environmental consultant and a very early scuba diver.
Wednesday 30 August, 7.30 PM (Venue TBD) A presentation by Carol Challis (Of Williamstown 'Ghost Walks' fame) that will take us on a simulated walk along the edge of the Bay where we all spend a lot of time: from the Timeball Tower to the mouth of Kororoit Creek Road on the western end of the Marine Sanctuary.
Carol's talk will focus on WHO has been here before us and what they were doing..what is know of the indigenous past and our murky early colonial past.
Wednesday 18 October, 7.30 PM (Venues TBD) A presentation by Dr Andrew Christie (of Melbourne Polytechnic and the Point Cook Marine Sanctuary Care Group) during which he will show us photos of a number of our local rays and provide us with information about these wonderful inhabitants of our two local marine sanctuaries.
