In this episode, we hear from Luke Halpin, who recently discovered that giant centipedes are eating his seabird research subjects on a tiny island off Norfolk Island. We hear about the difficulties of seabird research and why it's so important for ocean conservation. Find out more on The Conversation.
Also, we get an update on the Melbourne Sea Slug Census from Nicole Mertens of the Victorian National Parks Association. Divers were able to squeeze in a winter survey between lockdowns in July. You might be surprised to hear how many types of sea slugs live in the waters close to Melbourne! Find out more about the census here.
