Sea creatures star in locally made movies

Early in October was another clean-up effort where Simon Funnel (oyster grower) joined up with 18 members of The Glen to fill three council trucks, weighing 3 tonne of debris – an awesome effort!

This great new resource, called Ocean Survivors: protecting our rare and threatened marine species, available as a free DVD or via YouTube, provides an insight into some rare footage of local marine life, focusing on threatened species of Soft Coral, Black Cod, Turtles and White Sharks.

Brian Hughes, Coastal and Marine Officer for the CMA, said most of the footage used in the videos was taken as part of real-life research projects the CMA has been working on in partnership with the Marine Park, University of Technology, Sydney and the CSIRO.
