Professor Steve Smith and sea slug researcher Matt Nimbs will talk to us about the preliminary findings for the Coffs Harbour inaugural Sea Slug Census which was held from the 17th to 23rd January in the mid north coast region spanning the Solitary Islands Marine Park from Brooms Head to Sawtell. Sea Slugs, also known as nudibranches, are not only beautifully coloured, exotic sea creatures but also their presence help scientists identify any changes to our marine environmental. Volunteer citizen scientists joined the exciting event to help locating and identifying these fascinating resident sea slugs.
