Another Sea Slug (nudibranch) Census coordinated by the  Victorian National Parks Association is happening in the first weekend of October.  See https://vnpa.org.au/programs/sea-slug-census/  This webpage has some great information about sea slugs.

On Saturday 5th October 2019 at 10am MCRP will join in the census with a snorkel at Tea House Reef (Melway Map 86 B8), weather and water quality permitting.

We will give more details and a weather and conditions update in the week before.

This is our first snorkelling activity since the winter solstice snorkel, so this will give you a chance to wash the dust off your gear and clean your camera lens before our Summer Snorkelling Program begins in November.

The Great Victorian Fish Count: Saturday 23 November 9am. Calling all Fishcounters! 🐟 It’s the time of the year we don our gear and ask all the fish to stand up and be counted! The theme this year is “our marine life rocks”. With this in mind our first fish count will be held at the Ricketts Point teahouse reef November 23rd at 9 am. The emblem that will don our t shirts is the ornate cowfish.
If you are able to participate in the fish count can you please contact me Here and let me know & forward your t shirt size. The ladies t shirts are back this year as well. Further information closer to the date.
Happy snorkelling

Fishcount organizer.
