Watch Party: 'Baykeepers' shorts
Tune in for a Facebook live watch party of our four Baykeepers shorts.
- ‘Time of Chaos’: Arweet Carolyn Briggs, Boon Wurrung Elder, shares the Time of Chaos story which tells how Nerm was formed and why we must continue to protect it.
- ‘Beauty of our Bay’: There are more endemic species below the surface of Port Phillip Bay than there are in the Great Barrier Reef. Experience the diversity of species that call our Bay home.
- ‘Microplastics in our Bay’: After hearing about expansive amounts of plastic waste in every ocean, Port Phillip Baykeeper Neil Blake discovers the sands of his local beaches are also insidiously turning into a kind of micro-plastic confetti.
- ‘How Plastic Chokes Wildlife’: By studying the crucial breeding ground of mutton birds, biologist Jennifer Lavers' research into the digestive blockage, and severe toxicological effects, of plastic ingestion helps to strengthen the Baykeeper's concern to keep the plastic pollution from ever reaching the Port Phillip Bay shore.
The watch party will be broadcast on the EcoCentre Facebook page.
The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
