Sea Slug Census: 12-20 January

Do you know what Sea Slugs are? and just how beautiful they can be?!


At the Sea Slug Census we will be asking divers, snorkelers and rock poolers to search along our coast, take photos and share them with us, so we can create a snapshot of sea slugs living in our coastal waters this year.

Independent surveys or group activities … the choice is yours!

We would like everyone who has images of sea slugs taken along the coast from Nadgee to Bateman’s Bay to share their pictures with us. Help create the best possible species list to show what has been seen in this region.

You will be making a valuable contribution to an ongoing biodiversity monitoring project!

Sea Slugs come in all sorts of shapes and colours, but you have to look carefully or you won’t see them at all.
