Dr Beach pulls apart a paper that rejoices in the name of “Top marine predators track Lagrangian coherent structures” - or how big birds use those ripples and patterns on the surface of the sea to figure out where they’re going.

Bec Koss, PhD student from Deakin Uni talks about her PhD studies into Community Capacity Building for Effective Management of Marine Protected Areas – or how the community can take ownership of the marine wonders in their own 'front yard'.
Bron brings Part 1 of an interview recorded with Louie Psihoyos, director of The Cove, currently screening at the 2009 Melbourne International Film Festival. It exposes a previously well-kept secret by the Japanese government and people – the annual round-up, trafficking and slaughter of thousands of dolphins that return each year to a small Japanese cove. It also exposes a corrupt world-wide multi-billion dollar industry.
