Celebrate the Bay
Sunday 12 August, 12pm – 4pm, Town Beach, Broome
The Roebuck Bay Working Group are hosting a Celebrate the Bay event to showcase Roebuck Bay’s extraordinary biodiversity and heritage.
With huge intertidal mudflats, the Bay’s mud is full of invertebrates that are food for thousands of hungry migratory shorebirds, and its calm warm waters, home to dugongs, seagrass, mangroves, fish, crocodiles and at least three species of dolphin. Dinosaurs liked the Bay too, with their footprints stomped into the boldly coloured Broome sandstone.
Held during Science Week, displays will have activities and there will be competitions throughout the afternoon. Other exciting attractions will be scientists to chat about their research on the Bay, a Scitech interactive display and Steve Pigram playing songs about croc’s, pearling and blue-bone soup. The event is free.
Keep an eye out for the program which will be on the website shortly.
