Who doesn’t love beach-combing at low tide and perhaps collecting a few mussels for supper – with the appropriate licence, of course? But before you eat them, give a thought to what the mussels ate and how they did it inside that shell. How did the algal bloom (red tide) in Walker Bay affect them? And what about those little mobsters of dead jellyfish on the beach – the plough snails? How on earth do they know where to find the washed-up jellies? Come on an adventure with us and look more closely at these molluscs. We’ll also give thought to how our litter affects marine creatures. Can we change hearts, minds and habits to reduce the litter that ends up in the ocean?
