Welcome to Summer Everyone! And a nice hot day for BBQ Day too...
Ummm, however... things are pretty bad at Bastion Point, and for Mallacoota and Victorian coastal management as we know it. The dozers have rolled in, and destruction has begun. We speak with Simon Branigan from the Victorian National Parks Association about how the Mallacootians are travelling, the valiant efforts of the opponents in stopping the destruction, and what's in store over the weeks and months ahead. 

You may recall that in Port Phillip Bay we have our own species of Dolphins. Dr Kate Charlton-Robb found that out and she has been looking at their relatives up and down the coast. Did you know we have Dolphins in Gippsland Lakes? I bet you can't guess how related they are the Port Phillip Bay ones? Wait and hear...

Over the next week, the world's top sailors will be in Melbourne for the second leg of the ISAF World Cup in Sandringham. This is Australia's premier Olympic class sailing event and will feature more than 440 sailing athletes from 22 countries, including Olympians as well as many local sailors competing for championship points and sailing honours. Olympic Gold Medallist and the recently announced Rolex World Sailor of the Year Matt Belcher joins us to talk about this leg of the World Cup, what the title of World Sailor of the Year means, and his experiences in winning Olympic Gold on the water.
