The clean, wide beach an extensive shallows are living proof of why Mothers beach (Mornington) got its name. Eight energetic kids, a couple of chilled out Mums and a Grandma joined Baykeeper for a Shoreline Shell survey there last week to gather clues on the marine life in the area. Types of molluscs found included herbivores, carnivores, detritvores and predators: a diverse range indicating a healthy environment.
Can’t wait to check it out again in the cooler months! Thanks to Coastare Victoria for promoting the activity. Congrats to the enthusiastic shell hunters on the day; and to Mornington Shire for maintaining a great family beach.
