Bunurong Coast Education (BCE)
Inverloch visitors have shown great interest in the 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 Whale Watching tours are now planned for the Easter School Holidays.
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.

Congratulations to all the volunteers involved in planting over 5,000 indigenous seedlings. The seedlings were planted over the past couple of weeks, which is an enormous achievement from an energetic group of volunteers; therefore, the current sessions are now completed. We are very grateful to those members and friends who took part in this important project. Plans are in progress for further plantings over the coming months and we will advise you as soon as plants and dates are finalised
