Have you noticed the Bay looking a little fuzzy lately? It's caused by an abundance of sea butterflies and other zooplankton. Fascinating! 🦋Our visibility out at the UWO is finally starting to clear back up to our usual crystal clear summer conditions! If you were to look very closely out the windows of the Observatory recently, you would have been able to see clouds of tiny critters swimming around! This fuzzy illusion is created by millions of swimming animals called Zooplankton. Holoplankton are animals that swim as plankton for their whole lives and include salps, worms, molluscs and crustaceans. Meroplankton are only in the plankton for a short time as part of their lifecycle – like corals or seastars. Our tour guides have been able to spot miniscule swimming molluscs called pteropods or sea butterflies over the past few weeks.

Jenelle and Michelle were out collecting soil samples in Wonnerup last week as part of our soil testing program. As the team wraps up the soil sampling phase of the project, they now turn their attention to cross-referencing the 500+ lab results that will be used to inform nutrient mapping. Comprehensive nutrient maps will be provided to our participating farmers in February to show the nutrient status of their paddocks. This information helps inform better fertiliser decisions, which reduces nutrient runoff to our waterways. And with the current price of fertiliser, all farmers are keen to be more strategic with their fertiliser use! #waestuaries #revitalisinggeographewaterways #farmlife #geographebay #landcaresouthwest #sustainableagriculture #paddocktoplate ...
