In collaboration with the “Sea Slug Census” group, Ocean Connect will be running a hands-on session on the identification of sea slugs, nudibranchs and other magnificent creatures of the rocky shores to assist in the mapping of the marine diversity in this fragile ecosystem.

You will receive some useful resources to contribute to our (long-term) citizen science program. You will learn some essential techniques in the identification of marine wildlife. All data will contribute to the existing Burleigh Heads Rocky Shores species list.

We have marine scientists available on the day who are specialised in sea slugs and rocky shore biodiversity. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to marine research and science activities.

Suitable for ages 8 and above. Parents and guardians must supervise children during activity. Further details provided upon registration.

Supported by Division 13 Councillor Daphne McDonald.
Delivered by Ocean Connect.
