Bunurong Coast Education (BCE)

and Summer by the Sea (SBTS)

Summer visitors have shown great interest in the Coastcare sponsored SBTS and BCE activities along the Bunurong Coast.  Mike Cleeland has scheduled extra dinosaur sessions to meet demand and many excited children  have found bone fragments at the Dig Site, adding to the experience.  Rockpool Rambles and Spotlight tours at Screw Creek or the RACV Resort have been well attended and Big 4 guests should also thank Park Management for their support.

The rock platform at the mouth of Anderson inlet continues to be a an exciting place to visit showcasing the enormous variety of life found along Australia's southern coastline.  This year two species of Sea Hare; the smaller black lined (Aplysia parvula) and larger (A. sydneyensis) and their spaghetti-like egg masses have been very prevalent.  It is a joy to see the excitement and wonder of people of all ages as they discover these and other creatures of the shore for the first time.  They see rocky shores in a new light; knowledge brings an understanding of their value and a confidence to visit these areas safely while nurturing  the inhabitants.  Rod Webster.
