WELCOME TO THE SHIRE OF DANDARAGAN Whether this is your first time visiting the Shire of Dandaragan, or you are a return holiday maker, may I offer you a warm welcome to our region over this holiday period.

makes a great stopover at our Transit Caravan Park set in the peaceful Pioneer Park. The wonderful scenic tourist drive between Dandaragan and Badgingarra, off the Brand Highway, is certainly worth a look.

It seems like the years are flying by faster than ever, particularly since the onset of the pandemic and with our WA border opening up in early February 2022, we are once again fortunate to enjoy our Christmas and New Year celebrations with no restrictions and for this we can all be grateful. The West Australian State Government has done a wonderful job of managing the pandemic, as have all West Australians who have supported the steps taken to prevent its spread through lockdowns, mask wearing, gathering restrictions, and getting vaccinated.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, be sure to visit the new Yonga Walk Trail in the Lesueur National Park. This walk trail is a 26km loop that leads through hills, valleys and woodlands and can be completed in one day for those fit and experienced hikers or you can take two days and camp overnight in the campground. For more detailed information visit the Trails WA website but remember to always be mindful of forecast weather conditions before setting off, particularly in these hot summer months.

Onto more merrier things, this year we are excited to showcase our redeveloped Jurien Bay foreshore following the completion of our new state of the art skatepark, and new interactive nature playground, mini basketball court, and family picnic area. Since the staged openings of all these locations the foreshore has seen increased vibrancy and numbers utilising these areas since their completion. We are extremely proud of our new look foreshore and hope you and your family enjoy it too.

It is so wonderful to offer new and exciting things to do in our region each year and I hope you enjoy every minute of your time here. Remember to be safe on our roads if you a travelling and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year however you get to spend it this year.

With so much to see and do in our Shire make sure you stop in at our Turquoise Coast Visitors Centre on the main street of Jurien Bay. Our friendly staff will be able to provide you with all the up to date information on events and places of interest for you to visit. Popular spots include the Stockyard Gully Caves, Lesueur National Park, the Turquoise Way Path (a dual use path from the Jurien Bay Marina to the Hill River mouth), the Pinnacles, the Lobster Shack in Cervantes, Jurien Heights Mini Golf, to name just a few. Don’t forget about our inland towns - Badgingarra and Dandaragan - which also have plenty to offer visitors. Be sure to check out Badgingarra’s delightful Vern Westbrook Walk and Art Trail or for a small donation have a round of 18 holes at the new mini golf course located near the Badgingarra oval and public toilets – just make sure you bring your own golf clubs and balls to avoid disappointment. A counter lunch at the Badgingarra Tavern is a good idea too should you work up a thirst and an appetite.

It is a fully-serviced, accredited visitor centre on the Coral Coast that not only has brochures but also maps, tour and accommodation bookings, gifts and tourist merchandise and displays and artefact’s from the region. Drop in and visit us during your stay or as you pass through the region. In the meantime, here are some of the most common questions we get asked: Can I make a booking for Sandy Cape campsites? No, Sandy Cape is filled on a first come, first served basis. There is usually space available except for long weekends and school holidays. Where can we fill up our caravan water tanks? There is a water tap in the carpark outside the Jurien Bay Town Hall (next to the tennis courts) or at the ablution block at Memorial Park (not suitable for caravans or large vehicles) at the end of Hastings Street. How far to the Pinnacles from here? The park is 44km south from Jurien Bay. It will take about 40 minutes to get there. Do you sell the souvenir gold coins? Yes we do, our coins are stamped with the unique Australian Sea Lion. Where can we buy National Park Passes? We sell day, holiday or annual passes or you can buy them at the entry to each park. Do you have WIFI? Yes, we do - it’s absolutely free and available 24-hours a day. Get your password from the Visitor Centre.

Absolutely, try the Visitor Centre, Jurien Bay CRC, Newsagent or Post Office, and keep an eye out when visiting galleries and tourism operators. There are some lovely items available that are unique to this region. Can we see the Australian sea lions from the mainland? Not usually, and there is usually just a single sea lion if you do see one close to the shore. To see groups of sea

lions, there are three boat charter companies in Jurien Bay and one in Cervantes with most departing daily. We can show you prices, inclusions, check availability and book for you. Can we explore the caves around here? Yes, the Stockyard Gully Caves are a 45 minute drive north of Jurien Bay and east of Leeman.

Where are some great 4WD tracks? Can you fish off the beach or jetty? Where can we get a coffee? Is there an op shop? Can we camp on the beach? Can visitors borrow library books? Is there a car wash nearby? Can we have a campfire? Is there a caravan park in town?

CERVANTES - THE PINNACLE OF THE COAST Cervantes is a great location offering a variety of activities and stunning natural wonders that will appeal to most people. Cervantes is internationally famous for the Pinnacles, and is also the home of the always popular Lobster Shack. 17kms south of Cervantes townsite, the Pinnacles desert is a major tourist attraction of the region. Attracting more than half a million visitors every year, the Pinnacles desert covers an area of around 190ha, is around 60m above sea level and contains thousands of limestone pinnacles with some reaching 5m in height.

sculptures around town made for the Cervantes Art Festival this year. Here’s a hint, the theme was Spring! Once you have eaten, head south of town to find Lake Thetis, one of the few places in the world to shelter marine stromatolites! The Lake Thetis Loop Trail is an easy, 1.5 kilometre trail around the shores of the lake and provides opportunities to see and learn about the living communities of diverse inhabitants with population densities of 3000 per square metres in the structures.

Accessible by vehicle, foot or tour via a fully sealed road, sightseers are advised to allow at least 2 hours to follow the viewing trail and access the lookout. Entry fees for the park are $15 per passenger with pensioner discounts available, all payable at the gate. Caravans and trailers can be left in the car park, as the 4km loop is unsuitable for these. Annual parks passes can make travelling cheaper by purchasing through RAC, or through the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions in person or via their website. Pets, open fires and camping are all prohibited within the park boundaries. Hats, sunscreen and water are essential pre-requisites for a visit to the Pinnacles, especially throughout summer. And please remember the cardinal rule when visiting the Pinnacles is look and don’t touch!

Walk around the lake to take a look at these living fossils, which were formed by organism similar to earliest forms of life on earth. Stromatolites are built by microorganism too small for the human eye to see. The first 300 metres of boardwalk, which is universally accessible, passes the best examples of thrombolites in the lake. The thrombolite-building micro-organism of Lake Thetis resemble the earliest forms of life on Earth. The discovery of modern examples help scientists to understand the significance of micro-organisms in the environment and unravel the long history of life on earth. Today living examples of these once completely dominant organism are restricted to only a few places.

After your visit to the Pinnacles, you can head to nearby Cervantes for a meal. The Lobster Shack is the perfect spot to enjoy a feed of Crayfish and take in the coastal view. You can go on a tour of the factory or working crayfish boat while you are visiting and get a feel for the original industry that developed Cervantes. If the kids want to play, check out the new shark themed playground near the Sports and Recreation Centre, which was opened in December 2018 and worth the visit! See if you can spot some of the

THREE BAYS WALKWAY - GREEN HEAD Green Head’s ‘Three Bays Walkway’ is designed to let people immerse themselves in the landscape, experience its natural beauty, learn about the Aboriginal and European history and give visitors an opportunity to engage in repairing the coastal ecosystems and provide access for recreation.

The Three Bays of Green Head were created by an extraordinary limestone cliff escarpment approximately 2 kilometres long being eroded by the Indian Ocean. It includes the sweeping South Bay, the picturesque Dynamite Bay, and the charming yet peaceful Anchorage Bay. The white sandy beaches, rocky inlets and headlands, and rich limestone reefs provide an unmatched habitat of coastal health land and nesting sites for a wide range of native fauna. ¬The southern half of the escarpment forms the northernmost section of the Jurien Bay Marine Park, emphasising the importance of this unique coastal environment on West Australia’s truly remarkable Turquoise Coast. The wildlife is abundant with visitors being able to see sea lions and dolphins in their natural habitat. ¬A bird-watchers dream, the walk along the cliff will allow the visitor to see, at close proximity, white bellied sea eagles (Haliaeetus leucogaster), ospreys (Pandion haliaetus), pacific gulls (Larus pacificus), crested terns (Sterna bergii) and many other intriguing bird species.

During spring, the coast is covered in wildflowers, but still has stunning native plants all round year as well. To help the visitor better understand the area, the Three Bays Walkway is divided into sections, each with its own unique sense of place.

Green Head’s Three Bays are in Yued country and contain ancient midden sites and hunting grounds, and formed an important environment for the livelihood of traditional owners. For thousands of years Yued people have seasonally visited the Three Bays to hunt and collect fish, other marine life and the natural foods of the surrounding coastal vegetation, and gathered in the cooling breeze to eat and access fresh water. Yued people have been extensively consulted to ensure proper recognition of the ancient Midden sites on the headlands and protection of the surrounding coastal environment These midden sites are registered under the Aboriginal Heritage Act and during the consultation process Yued people have given full support to the project, engaging in important educative programs to raise awareness of the significance of the Three Bays and provide coastal management advice. ‘Cuencandjaa’ is the Yued name for Dynamite Bay meaning ‘mouthful of sand’ which is most appropriate for the natural form of the bay. The earliest known European visitors to the Turquoise Coast were seafarers who visited while attempting to reach settlements in Indonesia. One of these voyages was by the Vergulde Draeck (Gilt Dragon) which in 1656, was wrecked on the WA coast and led to Abraham Leeman’s two epic voyages in open boats to Java. There is a belief that the Gilt Dragon met it’s fate at Dynamite Bay. More recently, the SS Cambewarra foundered in 1914 off of Green Head and sank, commemorated in the naming of the northern headland of Dynamite Bay – Cambewarra Head.

No traffic lights or road rage. Relax everything is on Jurien Bay Time! Approx 2 degrees warmer than Perth. Not a cyclone area, we are just right.

DANDARAGAN & BADGINGARRA Dandaragan is a one hour drive from Jurien Bay and 20 minutes from Badgingarra, making it a perfect destination for a day out if you are staying in Jurien Bay and are getting sick of the beach. Both Dandaragan and Badgingarra are famous for their wildflowers, but those aren’t the only things to see and do in the hotter months. Dandaragan features historical buildings like Aggie’s Cottage (1871) which hosts a huge array of events throughout the year and St. Anne’s Church, which was built in 1888 as a school and church and held classes until 1948.

Pioneer Park features a rotunda depicting the history of Dandaragan since 1843, and the park area is great for a picnic or barbeque. This area also features the brand new ‘Dandaragan’ mural, with art right to the centre of the town. See if you can spot the ‘Pythagoras Tree’ while you are in town.

Dandaragan Way is a scenic route to the Brand Highway from Regan’s Ford, which is lined with Redgum Trees and offers truly unique views which

should not be missed. Regan’s Ford was named for Edward Regan, who was commissioned by Walter Padbury of Yathroo Farm to build the original ford for 10 pounds in 1870, which was vital to the progress of the area so produce and stock was able to be transported to Guildford for sale. On the tourist drive, enjoy stunning scenery including rolling hills, running creeks, marri trees, thousands of cockatoos and the unique flora of the Badgingarra National Park region.

The Vern Westbrook Walk Trail is located in Badgingarra, 50min away from Jurien Bay. Located in Phoebe’s Reserve and just off the Brand Highway along North-West Road, the trail is a 3-part walk with seasonal wildflowers, heritage sites, community art and beautiful scenery. Along the way you can learn about the Yallalie Meteorite impact zone that occurred in the area 70 million years ago. The Iain Wilson Nature Trail is situated in the Badgingarra National Park and is one of the best places to see wildflowers between August and November, but is still enjoyable provided you have a cool summer day. This 2km walk offers a wildflower display unique to the area including the extremely rare Badgingarra Mallee. For the avid walker, a 1.5km detour will reward visitors with magnificent views across the national park at the lookout. It’s important to be mindful of wildlife this time of the year, with larger animals like kangaroos and emus coming out later at night to beat the heat, and smaller animals like thorny devils and echidnas often remaining still on roads. Farmers are also transporting large quantities of grain on roads so be mindful of the size of these vehicles, as well as the impact this travel has on unfamiliar roads.

BEAT THE HEAT Summer is heating up and with that brings the desire to cool down in the largest body of water available! Jurien Bay, Cervantes and Green Head are known for their bright white beaches and clear turquoise waters, so it begs the question, which beach do I go to?

SANDY CAPE, JURIEN BAY A 15 minute drive north from Jurien Bay is this picturesque playground for all. The protected waters are generally calm all day and suitable for the whole family. If you are into 4WD-ing there’s plenty of little coves off the many tracks leaving from Sandy Cape. Jurien Bay Adventure Tours has an equipment hire station located near the big sand dune. They hire SUP’s and sandboards for the adventurous. Can get quite busy during the peak holiday times. ‘FRONT’ BEACH, CERVANTES The “face” of Cervantes, who could miss the incredible vista of Crayboats moored metres off of the beach. The perfect place to go for a swim or get on a paddle board, watch out for boats launching and tractors driving along the beach!

Jurien Bay Jetty, 2019

‘DOG’ BEACH, JURIEN BAY Jurien Bay’s longest beach, the ‘dog’ beach is where most locals take their precious pooches for a paddle. With plenty of sand, the beach has become popular for 4WD’s, fishermen and families alike. The beach backs up directly to bush, so be wary of ticks and sandflies during the summer and try not to chop up the sand with your vehicles too much, as this beach can become virtually inaccessible if the sand gets too corrugated. Keep an eye out for kids and animals on this beach. ‘SECRET’ BEACH, JURIEN BAY Is the spot to go if you want to take young kids and our more mature relatives for a swim. Protected from the wind and the surf, this idyllic beach is typically the place to go for a chill day, provided there is no seaweed or nasty smells. Check first if the water is swimmable, due to our ongoing Marina issues. ‘MEMORIAL’ BEACH & JETTY BEACH, JURIEN BAY The most widely accessible beach in Jurien Bay, these beaches are either a short walk from a carpark or accessible from the jetty. If you’re thinking about beach fishing, stick to the evenings and early mornings and if you’re unsuccessful, swing by Jurien Fish Shop to avoid coming home empty handed. ‘SHINGLE’ BEACH, JURIEN BAY Looks a bit different from when you may have last seen it! Parts of the beach have been swept away by woolly weather from our winter storms this year! Accessible by car for now, keep an eye on this spot for closures. 14

THIRSTY POINT, CERVANTES This southern beach / point of Cervantes features a lookout and is the best place to go if you are looking to go windsurfing. Dunes line the beach, hiding the Thirsty Point Walk Trail which connects to the Hansen Bay Lookout.

‘BACK’ BEACH, CERVANTES Looking for a 4WD spot? You’ve come to the right spot! Past the southern half of thirsty point this area is vetted for 4WD access. This is a popular dog exercising area so keep an eye out for four legged friends when driving on the beach here. HANSEN BAY BEACH , CERVANTES At the end of Hansen Bay Road, this vehicle-accessible beach is a great spot to park up your car, go beach fishing and watch the sunset. With an expansive beach there is plenty of room for everyone, jUSt a few minutes away from Cervantes by car and great for an afternoon adventure out of town. Beat the heat - continued next page

Beat the heat - continued

KANGAROO POINT, CERVANTES A 12 minute drive from Cervantes, Kangaroo Point is another ‘adventure spot’ – make a day of it and take down lunch provided it’s not blowing a gale! ‘DYNAMITE BAY’, GREEN HEAD A lovely beach mostly sheltered from the prevailing wind, Dynamite Bay is very picturesque and popular with families and solo travellers alike. There is an access ramp at the southern end of the car park for prams, walkers etc, a shower and fresh water tap on the grassed section between the beach and the car park, and shelters with picnic tables overlooking the bay.

POINT LOUISE, GREEN HEAD Accessible via an unsealed road from Green Head Road, the Point Louise Lookout provides an elevated view over Anchorage Bay, back towards the town site of Green Head itself. MILLIGAN ISLAND, GREEN HEAD Follow the signs from Green Head Road towards the Billy Goat Bay camp site and turn right past the Milligna Island camping nodes to discover this natural archway just off shore. Home to many species of birds, the natural arch offers great sunset photo opportunities. SOUTH BAY, GREEN HEAD The South Bay lookout is near Farley Street, with the car park to South Bay with it’s boat launching facility accessed from Ocean View Drive. The lovely Cliff Park is just near the car park, where you will also find a playground and ablution block. TI TREE LOOKOUT, LEEMAN Take a drive up to the coastal town of Leeman to visit Ti Tree Lookout, accessed via Thomas Street, just south of the Leeman Jetty. The lookout provides panoramic views over the ocean and nearby beaches.

CAUTION URGED AMID HIGHEST REGIONAL ROAD DEATHS IN THREE YEARS Holidaymakers are being urged to take extra care on our roads, with Western Australia recording its highest number of regional road deaths in three years just as the Christmas holidays begin.

“Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for many it will be a stark and devastating reminder of their loved ones who are no longer here because of road trauma. “The festive season is always a high-risk time on our roads, but particularly with more people travelling across regional WA than ever before. “It’s critical we don’t lose sight of the risks we face behind the wheel so we urge everyone to slow down, ditch the distractions, take regular breaks and be patient with one another. “Road fatalities and serious injuries are tragic, devastating and preventable — let’s all do our part to keep each other safe on the roads this festive season.”

According to the Road Safety Commission, 95 people have lost their lives on WA’s regional roads this year — the highest number of fatalities up to this day since 2018. RAC General Manager External Relations Will Golsby said it’s important we remember the true cost of road trauma. “There are far too many families heading into the Christmas break without their loved ones this year as deaths continue to occur on our regional roads at an alarming rate,” Mr Golsby said.

RAC recently expanded its Safe Travels initiative to provide free training sessions for WA drivers on how to safely navigate regional roads. The 90-minute sessions address some of the challenges they may face, including how to manage the journey with road trains, caravans, wildlife and unsealed roads https:// safe-travels Across all of WA, 160 people have been killed on our roads this year. Double demerit penalties come into effect on Christmas Eve and will remain in place until 10 January, 2022. Media Release - RAC

Sue, Bron, Maddi and Phil from the Jurien Bay Community Resource Centre Wish everyone a merry Christmas and safe and happy new year We will be closed from 5pm Friday, 24th December 2021 and re-open 9am Tuesday, 4th January 2022

GEOCACHING AROUND JURIEN BAY Geocaching is a treasure hunt with something for everyone. Using map coordinates and a GPS enabled device, (your phone, for example) you can find a geocache near your home, in the city, in the bush or in Antarctica. Geocaches come in all shapes and sizes too. You can find a tiny little one as small as your fingernail, or a huge geocache with exciting ‘treasures’ inside. It can be as easy or as hard as you like to make it. You can drive up to your geocache and spot it from the car, or you can choose to hike for miles up and down mountains in the sand in search of that elusive container. Now get out there and have some fun, but beware, it can be addictive! How do you go geocaching in Jurien Bay? Head to the Geocaching Australia website, www. • Choose a geocache - Click on Western Australia on the map, zoom in to the Jurien Bay area, then select a geocache. • Then - choose any geocache from the list and click on its name. Enter the coordinates of the geocache into your GPS device or load the geocache into a geocaching app on your smart phone. Use your GPS device or smartphone to navigate to the geocache. Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location. Log your adventure online. What are the rules of geocaching? • Find the geocache • Log your name in the log book • If you take something from a geocache replace it with something of equal or greater value • Log your adventure online What do I need to go geocaching? • You will need a GPS device or a GPS-enabled smartphone so that you can navigate to the cache • To log your adventure online you will need to create an account that identifies your geocaching name • Access to Geocaching Australia is free and open so no payment is needed to go geocaching Where are geocaches hidden? Geocaches are hidden all over the world. Geocachers will hide caches in locations that are important to them as well as locations that may require a special skills such as tree climbing, abseiling or kayaking. Geocache locations are very diverse and may be at your local park, at the end of a long hike, underwater or on the side of a city street.

What sort of geocaches can be found around Jurien Bay? There are lots of different types of geocaches. Theses are some of the ones you’ll find in and around Jurien Bay, Cervantes, and Green Head: • A TRADITIONAL cache is a type of cache that has a single published waypoint which is the location of the cache. They are called “traditional” because the first caches were of this form. A Traditional cache is likely to involve a straightforward walk to Ground Zero and a search for the cache. • A VIRTUAL cache is a type of cache that has no physical container. This is usually done because it would be inappropriate to place a physical container at the location. Reasons for this include: • Area is of historical importance • Area of cultural sensitivity • It’s an environmentally sensitive location • The land owner does not want caches left there • There is generally no room for a decent sized cache • The MYSTERY cache (also known as an Unknown or Puzzle cache) is a “catch-all” type for caches which don’t fit the definitions of the other cache types. Examples are caches involving puzzles you need to solve to determine the actual coordinates, sending the cache owner a verification codeword found inside the logbook, performing some task at the cache location, or writing the online log in a format or with content that satisfies the cache requirements. Sometimes the hider may decide to declare a mystery cache just to add an element of surprise, or to remove any pre-conceived ideas about the hunt. • A WEBCAM cache is a virtual cache that has an Internet webcam. Finders are typically required to use the webcam to take a photo of themselves and post it in their log. • A TRIG POINT (also known as a Trigonometric Station) typically consists of a black disc on top of four metal legs or concrete pillar, resembling a navigation beacon. It is also accompanied by a metal disc, which is located directly below the center point of the tripod or on top of the pillar itself. Trig points are generally located at the top of hills or points of prominence in the landscape. Many provide unique views and challenges, with some being difficult to get to.

FISHING IN JURIEN BAY Fishing is a popular activity in Jurien Bay with options to suit most people. You can cast a line from a boat, the beach, jetty or marina and you don’t need a lot of equipment- a handline off the jetty can prove to be quite successful if you are there at the right time. If you are only fishing from the land you don’t even need a licence.

Beach fishing is great in the evening with some burley. Herring and tailor are the most common catches from the beach, although whiting are also a common catch. Mulies are a great choice for bait, along with squid and prawns. As with most fishing it is a waiting game, but it gives you time to take in our stunning sunsets. The Jurien Bay Jetty is a popular place to fish from early in the morning until late at night. It is well lit and is a great place to catch squid, herring, tailor, skippy and whiting. Long lines off the end of the jetty have even snared a few snapper. Use plenty of burley and time your trip, with late afternoon into the evening being a great time to fish. If you are lucky enough you often see dolphins hunting the squid. Hand lines in the shallow water will also pay off.

The marina is a great place to try with plenty of people catching a range of fish and swimmer crabs. The picturesque location is a great place to spend an

evening trying your luck for a big catch. The marina walls are a good place to try for snapper or some larger predatory fish.

If you are lucky enough to own a boat or know someone who does, then you are in for a treat. Boat fishing is extremely popular in this region, where you can catch everything from dhufish to snapper, not too far offshore. You will need a current Recreational Fishing from Boat Licence. Applications for online recreational fishing licences and renewals are processed through the Department of Transport’s website or you can pop in to the Jurien Bay CRC on Bashford Street and we’ll be happy to assist you. We will be closing between Christmas and New Year, re-opening at 9 am on Tuesday 4 January 2022.

If you don’t have access to a boat do not despair, there are plenty of charter fishing companies in town. They can provide all the equipment and you also gain their local knowledge. Ask at the Turquoise Coast Visitor Centre for their contact information. Seasport and Tackle is also a great place to have most of your fishing related questions answered, and to pick up some bait. So throw in a line and try to catch a big one! Even if you don’t, the story about ‘that’ one that got away never hurt anyone. SUMMERTALES • January 2022

JURIEN BAY PROGRESS ASSOCIATION Enormous thanks must go to the people and organisations that have supported us this year and we especially acknowledge the Jurien Bay CRC and the staff at the Shire of Dandaragan; our market stall holders and the community members who donated goods for our Garage Sale. Especially of note is YOU, if you have patronised our market and other events. We really appreciate our community’s support.

Just a little reminder that we have a New Year’s Market on Sunday 2 January at Fauntleroy Park from 8:00 am until 12:00 noon. We also have our annual free Australia Day Breakfast at Fauntleroy Park from 8:00am.

Interestingly 2021 has been a peculiar year but in reality no different to 2020; together, we made our way through it and are ready to face the next challenge. As a local organisation we strive to serve our town and here is what we have done during 2021. We have lobbied, on behalf of the residents, regarding safe road conditions, shade in public recreation areas, and suitable signage for events and information. We held eight successful markets. We continue to collect furniture and bric-a-brac donations. We continue to host the annual free Australia Day Breakfast on behalf of the Shire (thanks go to the Jurien Bay Community Men’s Shed for their assistance with setting up and breaking down). We have now held a Free Family Fun Day for three years in a row; and with the support of Cr Peter Scharf, we continue to work towards a new town lookout.

On a final note, I really must acknowledge and thank our Progress Association members. Everything we do and everything we are able to achieve is down to our membership. These are the people who make things happen in our community.

Bevin Paxman | Chairperson

SUNDAY, 2 JANUARY 2022 ~ 8am-12pm The shed where we store our equipment has had a septic tank and leach drain installed. Thanks go to Jurien Plumbing, you’re a winner Pete. The next stage will be gravelling the block and then the installation of a water tank. It all takes money and just now, we are diverting funds towards these works. Eventually we hope to add a small toilet for the benefit of members who stay at the shed while the Garage Sale is on.

FAUNTLEROY PARK Brought to you by the


As a small organisation we work hard to put the interests of the town first. All of our activities are ‘Risk Assessed’, and we always have a plan to ensure the safety of those attending, as well as the members organising and attending our events. We do it and we do it well. The year has flashed by; however, we will do the same amazing things we did last year and into the future. We serve our community to make it a better place to live.

ACCESS TO THE ISLAND NATURE RESERVES OF THE TURQUOISE COAST The island reserves situated off our coastline are unique and fragile, are largely unspoilt in the form of human impacts, and are home to some very rare and endangered fauna. Some 40 islands are found within the Turquoise Coast area between Lancelin and Dongara with a great number of those situated within the waters of the Jurien Bay Marine Park. All islands of the Turquoise Coast are nature reserves and are set aside specifically for the protection of flora and fauna, with a large proportion being ‘A class’ ranked.

Being offshore islands they are often free from some species of pests and diseases that are prevalent on the mainland, which is why the island nature reserves are set aside for special protection, to lessen the risk of introducing a problem that contributes to irreversible damage. These beautiful island reserves are attractive to us humans and being only a quick boat ride offshore, setting foot on the clean, unspoilt beaches some of the islands have to offer has been a favourite pass time of locals and visitors to the area for many years. In recent weeks, the islands have seen an increase in visitation numbers both of tourists and locals alike, coinciding with the warm weather and summer school holidays. This increase in visitation has unfortunately also seen a rise in unlawful activity being detected, and all visitors are reminded that dogs, camping, fires and the taking of any flora or fauna is prohibited and penalties apply.

Sea lions on Essex Rocks Island

Various islands have been identified as home to some of Australia’s most vulnerable species of wildlife including the Australian Sea Lion (Neophoca cinerea), Fairy Tern (Sternula nereis), Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), White-bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster), Dibbler (Parantechinus apicalis) and the Lancelin Island Skink (Ctenotus lancelini).

Visitors are also reminded that limited access is permitted only to beaches on designated islands and it is an offence to enter the areas beyond the beach. There are some specific islands classed as ‘no access’ zones and for these islands it is unlawful to land and access anywhere within the island reserve. If you are accessing beaches of the permitted islands on a day trip within the Jurien Bay Marine Park, some of the island reserves are located within sanctuary or special purposes zones. These zones govern what activities are permitted or not permitted including the type of fishing and some species-specific limitations. Increased patrols by DBCA compliance officers will target unlawful activity and we appeal to visitors to leave your dogs at home and stay only on the beach areas of the permitted islands. DBCA produces a brochure specific for the Jurien Bay Marine Park which includes the island reserves, that is available from the Parks & Wildlife Service office in Jurien Bay or online at

AMAZING FUN FACTS ABOUT SPACE The last frontier of space is a beautiful, vast and mysterious place. The more we study and explore, it seems the more questions we have. However, scientists are breaking down the mysteries, piece by piece and we’ve put together a list of some of the most mind-bending facts for you to grapple with.

1. Venus’s Day Lasts Longer than its Year. Because Venus rotates backwards, the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. Even more curious, because of its slow rotation, a day on Venus takes 243 Earth days and one year is equal to 224 days. 2. How Big is Big? The Sun is so big we could theoretically squash in 1.3 million Earths! But that isn’t big. The largest star discovered is called UY Scuti, it’s almost 16x wider than the distance from the Earth to the Sun!

4. How Big are the Rings of Saturn? Saturn’s spectacular ring system is made up of various sizes of dust, ice and rock. But did you know the rings extend out 282,000 kilometres from the planet and are only about 10 metres thick! 5. There are More Stars than Grains of Sand! Scientists estimate our universe contains at least 70 sextillion stars or 70 thousand, million, million, million, observable stars, that’s 7 followed by 22 zeros! 6. What Would it Take to Match the Energy of the Sun? The outer surface temperature of the sun is 5,500 degrees C, while at the core it reaches 15 million degrees C. That is equal to exploding 100 billion tons of dynamite every second! 7. How Much Space Junk is out in Space? Since our first forays into space, humans have been cluttering up ‘Low Earth Orbit’ with dangerous space debris. Rough estimates count 900,000 pieces from 1cm to 10cm in size. Find out more geminids-meteor-shower/

3. The Moon is Moving Away from Earth Yes, ‘Lunar Retreat’ is a thing! The Moon is travelling out 3.8 centimetres per year. Due to gravity pushing and pulling between the Earth’s oceans and the Moon, the Moon is speeding up and its orbit is getting larger.

appear in the EXACT same place, the more distant object will be “blocked out”. This event is referred to as an occultation and can be very useful for astronomers researching planets and their atmospheres.

We miss seeing Mars go behind the Moon like the Eastern States will see, but it will be pretty spectacular to see Mars so close to the Moon.

Jupiter & the Moon | 6th January View of Jupiter and the crescent Moon along with Saturn and Mercury in the evening sky.

When to look: From 4am, 1st January Which direction to look: Very low to the eastern horizon

Keep watching to see Saturn and Mercury appear close together on 13th January.

SOMETHING INTERESTING: When two cosmic objects appear near each other in the sky, it is referred to as a conjunction. If two objects 38 SUMMERTALES • January 2022

When to look: After sunset, January the 6th Which direction to look: West

Which direction to look: South. Look for two very bright stars (Canopus and Achernar). The Magellanic Clouds appear roughly between these two stars and will look like small fuzzy clouds.

SOMETHING INTERESTING: It takes Jupiter approximately 12 years to orbit the Sun once. As Jupiter travels along the ecliptic plane, the pathway the Sun takes through the Earth’s sky across a year, this means that Jupiter will spend approximately 1 year in each of the 12 constellations of the Zodiac.

FOR TELESCOPES AND BINOCULARS There’s a lot to see in the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds. Binoculars will bring these two satellite galaxies to life. If you have a telescope, try to find 47 Tucanae or 47 Tuc for short. Its catalogue number is NGC 104. 47 Tuc is a globular cluster of up to half a million stars and is 15,000 light years from Earth. So even though it looks like it could be part of the Small Magellanic Cloud, it’s not. Check out this NASA image…

The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (sometimes abbreviated to LMC and SMC!) are galaxies outside of our own Milky Way Galaxy. From Earth, they look like two faint clouds in the southern night sky, one larger than the other, and form a splendid spectacle. They are only seen from the Southern Hemisphere. The best time to see the Magellanic Clouds is when there’s no moonlight. When to look: Here are our top picks for early evening times to see the Magellanic Clouds in 2022! • From 8.30pm, between 6th-15th January • From 8pm, between 5th-14th February • From 7.30pm, between 6th-17th March • From 7pm, between 4th-15th April • From 8pm, between 29th October-7th November • From 8.30pm, between 27th November-6th December

SOMETHING INTERESTING The Milky Way is part of a group of galaxies that are all linked together by the pull of gravity, called the Local Group. There are about 54 galaxies in our Local Group. These are mostly dwarf galaxies clustered around the 3 largest of Milky Way, Andromeda and Triangulum. The Magellanic Clouds are two of our closest galactic neighbours in the Local Group. The Large Magellanic Cloud is about 160,000 light years from Earth and the Small Magellanic cloud is a bit further at 200,000 light years away. That’s very close, astronomically speaking! They are both classified as irregular galaxies. Our bigger Milky Way is exerting gravitational forces that are slowly pulling them out of shape. These galaxies were named after the Portuguese sailor Ferdinand Magellan who completed the first circumnavigation of the Earth from 1519 to 1522, using the ‘clouds at night’ to voyage into the southern seas.

GERRY & SANDI 0478 813 677

CHOICE BEDS & LIVING Gerry and Sandi started their business in 2001. They felt they could give better and more personal service than big businesses could. Their first shop was in Osborne Park, ‘Choice Beds & Furniture’. They later changed their name to just ‘Choice Beds’ and sold beds only as mattresses were still WA Made and it was important to them, and still is, to support WA business. When Gerry and Sandi moved to Jurien Bay they opened a ‘Choice Beds’ store but soon changed the name to ‘Choice Beds & Living’ when they saw a need in the community for linen, kitchenware and bathroom accessories. Do you have staff? How many? Apart from themselves we employ one casual staff member. How do you advertise your product/service? Advertising is done mainly through Facebook but also in the local Craytales Newspaper and through leaflets in post office boxes. Does your business help the community through sponsorships etc? It’s important for Gerry and Sandi to give back to the local community. They sponsor the bowls and football clubs as well as giving donations to many local businesses in Jurien Bay and surrounding towns. They also provide prizes regularly for the Pick a Box at Jurien Bay Hotel. Do you have a website? At this stage there is no website for Choice Beds and Living. You can find them on social media and in the local Craytales Newspaper. They sometimes also drop flyers into post office boxes. They would love for more of the local community to pop in and see them! Even though they have been a part of the community for a couple of years they still get customers coming in and saying they have never been in before, and they are so surprised by all that the store has to offer. What would you like a potential customer to know about your business? Exceptional service is the norm for Choice Beds and Living. We like to go out of our way to find exactly what the customer is looking for. Our prices are very competitive with Perth, if not cheaper, and you don’t have the hassle and expense of having to get your furniture delivered from Perth. You can also see and touch the products so you know what you are getting. Gerry and Sandi see a lot of people selling things that have been bought online and it’s the

wrong size or not what they were wanting. There are a lot of online businesses making money by sending out low quality items and the money is often going to another country, but this is not the case for Choice Beds and Living. They stock high quality wares and support Australian and WA business where possible. What products do you offer? Choice Beds and Living offer all furniture, beds and mattresses, lift chairs, adjustable beds, kitchenware, bathroom, linen and giftware. They do special orders for linen, kitchenware and caravan mattresses. What is your favourite product? That’s a hard question. There are too many items in the store to just have one favourite product and it’s always changing, so generally there is a new favourite product every two to four weeks. What makes you passionate about your business and when did you decide to be a small business owner? Gerry and Sandi decided to become a small business owner just after their youngest daughter’s 1st birthday, so almost 22 years ago now. They love helping customers and giving advice on what suits their needs best, whether it be for a bed, pillow or a lounge suite. How long have you lived in the area, and what do you like about living here? Gerry and Sandi built a holiday home here seven years ago. They made the move to Jurien Bay two years ago. They love the very friendly people and the community spirit. They love chatting with the locals and it makes running a business more enjoyable when you have great customers. They also love the beaches and the peace and quiet. Tell us about yourself? What do you like to do on your day off? If they’re not at work Gerry and Sandi like to 4wd, go to the beach and travel around to see what they can find locally and supporting other small business in the town. Where did you grow up and go to school? Sandi grew up in Perth and Gerry is from Melbourne What do you envisage your business being like in two years? What are your long term goals? It is been hard work over that past two years for Gerri and Sandy, building the business up with stock to suit the needs of the community. They want to continue to do this and also have more stock and be finished with setting it all up. They would also love to see more customers. So drop in and say hello to Gerry and Sandi, see what they have and support a small local business. SUMMERTALES • January 2022

PREPARATION A COMMUNITY EFFORT WHEN IT COMES TO DISASTER SEASON nbn has launched its 2021 Emergency Preparedness campaign by reminding Australians to put safety measures in place this disaster season and follow some simple tips to help maintain communications during emergency events. Disaster season provides an opportunity to refresh contingency plans and make sure family members are aware of what to do. nbn has these top tips for households: 1. Stay Mobile - Keep a charged mobile phone and portable mobile battery pack ready to use in a power outage, or if your nbn™ connection is disrupted in an emergency event. Consider turning off mobile data on unnecessary apps to save battery. 2. Stay Updated - Local radio is a good source of information during an emergency, so include a battery powered radio in your emergency communications kit. Also follow emergency services, including your state Fire and Rescue and Police Services, as well as utility companies and nbn (@NBN_Australia) on social media for updates. 3. Back up - To make sure you can access important information and essential documents from anywhere, including insurance policies and financial documents, consider creating a digital back up on a USB or in the cloud. 4. Alternative Power - If there is a power outage, equipment connected to nbn™ services will not work. For home needs during these times, you might want to consider investing in an alternative power source, like a generator. Unfortunately, alternative options like generators will not bring back home internet if the nbn™ network is also experiencing a power loss.

nbn is continuing to roll out the nbn™ Disaster Satellite Service and units are being installed at designated emergency management sites and evacuation centres across regional Western Australia. The nbn™ Disaster Satellite Service services provide a back-up communications connection using satellite technology and will be switched on during an emergency event, providing free full satellite broadband functionality, including Wi-Fi and video streaming. “Emergency preparedness is truly a community effort; we are prepared with our contingency measures and if households are prepared with those tips, we can work together to manage the impacts of emergency events and stay connected.” To organise an Emergency Preparedness Briefing for your Shire or Community Group, please contact: Jenny Thomas Community Engagement Manager, nbn - Gascoyne, Midwest & Wheatbelt (Office based in Mingenew) Email

FIRST AID FOR SNAKE BITES Snakes are common in this region, but snake bites are rare if common sense is used. Stay on designated paths, wear closed footwear and keep an eye out. If you are unlucky enough to be bitten here is some simple first aid advice. Do NOT wash the area of the bite or try to suck out the venom! It is extremely important to retain traces of venom for use at the hospital. This will enable the hospital staff with venom identification kits to identify the snake so as the correct anti venom can be administered. Dial 000 for an ambulance. Do NOT incise or cut the bite, or apply a high tourniquet. The venom travels mainly through the lymphatic system of the body, so cutting of the blood supply is not warranted. Cutting or incising the bite won’t help either. Encourage the patient to keep the still and remain calm. Stop lymphatic spread - bandage firmly, splint and immobilise! The lymphatic system is responsible for systemic spread of most venoms. This can be reduced by the application of a firm bandage (as firm as you

would put on a sprained ankle) over a folded pad placed over the bitten area. While firm, it should not be so tight that it stops blood flow to the limb or to congest the veins. Start bandaging directly over the bitten area, ensuing that the pressure over the bite is firm and even. If you have enough bandage you can extend towards more central parts of the body, to delay spread of any venom that has already started to move centrally. A pressure dressing should be applied even if the bite is on the victims trunk or torso. Immobility of the wound is best attained by application of a splint or sling, using a bandage or whatever to hand to absolutely minimise all limb movement, reassure and immobilise (eg, putting the patient on a stretcher). Where possible, bring transportation to the patient (rather than vice versa). Don’t allow the victim to walk or move a limb. Reassure patient and if necessary the parent. The pressure-immobilisation approach is simple, safe and will not cause tissue damage (ie, from incision or arterial tourniquets) both of which are ineffective.

TICK TREAT YOUR DOG BEFORE TRAVELLING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF EHRLICHIOSIS Western Australian travellers are reminded to ensure their dogs are on a tick control program before travelling with them these holidays, to reduce the risk of their dog developing or spreading ehrlichiosis.

found for the first time in Australia in 2020 in WA and the Northern Territory. WA Chief Veterinary Officer Michelle Rodan said holidayers travelling with their dogs to northern WA should be aware the disease was established in the Kimberley and had also been found in the Pilbara, Gascoyne and northern Goldfields. “If you are taking your dog to northern WA, take steps to reduce the risk of ehrlichiosis in your dog by visiting your vet before travelling to obtain a suitable tick treatment,” Dr Rodan said. “Treat your dogs for ticks regularly, both before and after your trip, and check them for ticks every day, especially around the neck, head, ears, armpits, belly and in between toes.

Ehrlichia canis is transmitted primarily by the brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus), which is widely distributed worldwide and is present in Australia.

Ehrlichiosis is a serious disease of dogs spread by the bite of an infected brown dog tick. The disease was 44

LIVING BY THE SIX SEASONS OF THE NOONGAR ABORIGINAL CALENDAR – BIRAK Although mainstream education teaches the four seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, Western Australia’s Noongar Aboriginal people lived by six seasons. These seasons clearly indicate change in weather. Aboriginal culture dates back tens of thousands of years and reveals an astounding knowledge and understanding of the environment.

In December and January, it’s the season of… Birak – December/January Birak is known as ‘first summer’ and a time for controlled fire burning. With easterly winds most mornings and sea breezes in the afternoon, communities were known to burn in mosaic patterns. This would flush out game for food and burn out weeds ready for growth of edible plants in Djilba (August/September). Reptiles shed their skins and Banksia flowers are picked for their sweet honey. Artist, Rikki Garlett The beautiful image to the left was created by Rikki Garlett, a local Ballardong artist who grew up in Northam. Her ambition is to create traditional art, inspired by the stories of her culture shared to her as a child. She sees her art as a way to share knowledge and connect with the community. If you would like Rikki for other projects, please contact Wheatbelt NRM.

Through this ancient wisdom, Noongar Aboriginal people (sometimes spelled Nyoongar or Nyungar) lived across the south west of Western Australia. Life was lived according to the six seasons, moving with the availability of various food sources, weather patterns and cultural habits. The six Noongar Aboriginal Seasons are: • Birak (December-January) • Bunuru (February-March) • Djeran (April-May) • Makuru (June-July) • Djilba (August-September) • Kambarang (October-November)

Noongar Season Dateless Planner WA’s Wheatbelt NRM organisation, in conjunction with the Wheatbelt NRM Elders Advisory Group, has produced a wonderful yearly planner laid out with the Noongar six seasons. It’s a dateless planner and includes photographs and stories from all over the Wheatbelt along with art from local Ballardong artist Rikki Garlett. You’ll discover more about the six Noongar Aboriginal Seasons and the unique Wheatbelt environment. The planner is for sale from Wheatbelt NRM’s website https://www.wheatbeltnrm.

Tick treat your dog before travelling to reduce the risk of Ehrlichiosis - continued

Travellers leaving the Kimberley and heading south are also reminded of the dog movement conditions in place to reduce the spread of ehrlichiosis to southern areas of WA. “Before leaving the Kimberley, ensure your dog is healthy, notify the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development at animalbiosecurity@, treat and check the dog for ticks and report any disease signs to a vet,” Dr Rodan said.

Visit the DPIRD website at for more information about the disease signs and movement conditions. Infected dogs do not directly transmit ehrlichiosis to people, however in rare cases, infected ticks may transmit the disease to people. See the WA Department of Health website for information on human health implications associated with ticks, as well as prevention, removal and first aid advice.

“Travellers leaving the Pilbara, Gascoyne and northern Goldfields are also encouraged to follow these conditions.”

Taking advantage of the sand dunes in Sandy Cape is also made simple, with Jurien Bay Adventure Tours providing guided tours and/or equipment hire. Snorkelling the reef system is also popular and sets are available for half or full day hire.

Life is an adventure for the adventurous, so contact Kass from Jurien Bay Adventure Tour today. SUMMERTALES • January 2022 49

Beachcombing Basics

Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development

Over eighty percent of Australia’s population lives within 50 kilometres of the coast. With this in mind, it’s important that we learn about our coast, so we can also look after it! We have over 12,500 kilometres of coastline in Western Australia to explore, with almost half our coastline made up of sandy beaches. Other areas along our coast include rocky shores, estuaries, mangroves, mud flats and sand flats. When exploring our coastline, it’s always important to be prepared so you can make the most of your beachcombing experience. Here are a few helpful tips: • Wear sun protective clothing, including a hat and sunscreen.

• Be careful when picking items up – you never know what could be hiding inside, or what might sting you! • Help the environment and take any rubbish safely home with you – recycle or place it in the bin. • Take your camera to help you to capture memories of your finds. • Leave marine life on the beach where you found it – each plant and animal plays an important part in the environment. • Leave only your footprints…

• Take a bottle of water – it can get hot out in the sun! • Take a hand lens or magnifying glass for closer inspection.

Beach Pledge Before you head down to the beach – take the Beach Pledge! I will help protect the beach by using pathways. I will be careful where I walk, to avoid treading on plants and animals. I will discover many things on the beach, but leave the plants and animals where I found them. I will care for the beach by placing my rubbish in the bin and recycle where possible. I will remember my experience by memories and photos, and leave only my footprints. Beachcombers Education Kit, more resources like this can be found at –

CONDUCTING A BEACHCOMBING FIELD TRIP Conducting your own beachcombing field trip is as simple as following the steps below.



Beachcombing Field Guide Beachcombing Datasheet Clipboard(s) and pencils Camera Tape measure

Exploration time! Choose a goal for your participants depending on their level of understanding. EXAMPLE ONE: Using the Alphabet Beach Walk activity sheet, see how many natural and man-made items you can find on the beach.

Rubbish bags, gloves, tongs and sharps container. Hula-hoops (x3) – optional

EXAMPLE TWO: Ask participants to collect at least one plant, one animal (or remains of an animal) and one manmade object (or marine debris).

Magnifying glass for closer inspection – optional Sun protective clothing (including hat and sunglasses) and sunscreen Tangaroa Blue Ocean Care Society, Marine Debris Identification Manual – optional Tangaroa Blue Ocean Care Society, Debris Collection Datasheet – optional

For the purpose of this activity these broad terms apply as follows: • Plant – a living thing that has the ability to produce its own food, has ‘root-like’ and ‘leaflike’ structures, e.g. seagrasses, algae and terrestrial plants (e.g. spinifex, or branches and nuts from nearby trees). • Animal – a living thing, or the remains of a living thing, that cannot produce its own food. It has body parts developed for feeding and generally has external structures to assist in movement, e.g. cuttlebone, shell and seahorse. • Marine debris – litter or rubbish that has found its way to the sea, either from a landbased or ocean-based source. This includes man-made items such plastic, rubber, glass and fishing line.

OUTLINE When on location, before commencing your beach walk, consider the following: 1. Reinforce the various safety messages to your participants, as discussed in your preexcursion activities. • It’s recommended that participants wear suitable footwear on the beach and avoid bare feet (due to glass and other items which may be on the beach). • Do not pick up glass, syringes or other potentially dangerous items. • Do not pick up bluebottles, as their stinging cells can still be active, even when they are washed up on

the beach. Refer to Danger Zone fact sheet for further information about potentially dangerous marine life. 2. Define the area of exploration – point out sand dune vegetation, high and low tide watermarks, sea wrack or strand line if present, and other features. Advise students to stay off rocks and out of water. It may help to divide the beach into three zone using the beach profile: • Sand dunes – do not walk on the sand dune vegetation to avoid degradation. • Beach – follow the strand line (the line of algae along the beach at the high tide mark) to discover hidden treasures on the beach. Or sort through the sea wrack to see what you can find. • Swash zone – students should avoid this area unless the relevant water-based excursion guidelines are adhered to. 3. Define the exploration time permitted, e.g. 20 minutes. 4. Split the group into smaller groups with a parent helper – you may also like to ensure participants have a buddy at all times to assist with supervision.

EXAMPLE THREE: See if you can find: • the three different types of algae (seaweed). Beware: the sun does bleach the algae – changing the colour, which might confuse some participants; Conducting a Beachcombing Field Trip - continued page 53

a piece of seagrass; an animal or remains of an animal; and any man-made items.

Have a plastic bag available to collect the rubbish, but be careful of sharps. If participants are unsure of an animal or any items they find on the beach, they should ask an adult before they pick it up. Once the exploration time has finished, regroup participants to discuss what they have found at a designated location on the beach. Remember to complete the Beachcombing Datasheet – ‘physical features’ component, prior to the exploration time. DISCUSSION AFTER EXPLORATION TIME Identification and classification of items found on your beachcombing field trip are an essential component of your participants’ understanding and learning. After the exploration time has finished, use hulahoops (or draw shapes in the sand) to sort (or classify) items found. Choose the classification level appropriate to the age group and level of understanding of your participants. This can be achieved through a simple staged approach: 1. Classify as natural and man-made items. 2. Classify into plants, animals and man-made items (or marine debris). 3. Classify into relevant kingdoms (Animalia, Plantae and Protista) and man-made items. 4. Classify into relevant phyla and classes where appropriate. Using the Beachcombers Field Guide, identify organisms found and complete the Beachcombing Datasheet – ‘beach specimen list’. Once you have classified and identified your beachcombing items, discuss why classification is important. You may also like to include the following concepts in your discussion:

What impacts do they have on the marine and coastal environment?

You may also choose to use the Tangaroa Blue Ocean Care Society, Marine Debris Identification Manual and Debris Collection Datasheet to assist in looking at the marine debris found along the beach. COASTAL PROCESSES Coastal processes play an important part in shaping our coastline. There are some additional activities within the kit that you may choose to conduct with your participants, depending on your area of interest. Check out the Coastal Processes section of the kit for further information. At the completion of your beachcombing discussion, it’s important to leave all plant and animal life (dead or alive) on the beach, as it all plays an important part in the coastal ecosystem. Don’t forget to take the rubbish home and leave nothing but your footprints behind! EXTENSION ACTIVITIES: The effects of site choice on beachcombing Complete the beachcombing field trip at different sites – compare your findings. Discuss if the type of coastal habitat (and adjacent habitats) and/or manmade features have an effect on your beachcombing experience. Seasonal impacts on beachcombing Complete the beachcombing field trip at different times of the year, at the same site. Observe and record how the beach changes over time. Discuss the diversity of organisms you have found on the beach – are some animals seasonal? Are the same levels of rubbish present all year, or does this vary depending on the season? How does the coastline change throughout the year?

HABITAT If possible, identify the various habitats where the coastal and marine life is found. • Are you walking along a sandy beach or a limestone rocky shore? • Are there any known or visible limestone or coral reefs, or seagrass meadows close by? • Have some of the items you found come from a terrestrial (land-based) habitat? HUMAN IMPACT Discuss the man-made items that you found along the beach. • How did they get there? • Where did they come from?
