Coast to Coral (Sunshine Coast) August
Our Coast to Coral Community Lecture series is back for 2018! Come and join Reef Check Australia and friends at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast for an evening of discovery, inspiration and appreciation of our local marine, coastal and catchment environments. Each month we have a new, interesting and engaging speaker.
This month we'll hear from Gary Cobb - local Sunshine Coast nudi enthusiast. Anyone who wants to know more about those “spikey” nudibranchs or with an interest in nudibranchs in general will be interested in this talk.
Gary Cobb is a member of a small team of enthusiasts from nudibranch.com.au who have been recording the nudibranchs of the Sunshine Coast for approximately 16 years. In that time they have recorded 749 species in this region, some endemic to the Sunshine Coast. His enthusiasm for these beautiful critters is infectious and is certain to have you looking out for them whenever rock pooling, walking along the water’s edge or diving.
Come along to learn about the way this sub-group of nudibranchs breathes, eats and defends itself. The talk will be held in the Seal Stadium at SEALIFE Mooloolaba, on Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba.
