The festivities kick off on the morning of Saturday August 15 with four marine experts presenting talks, including a talk on the Burrunan dolphin by its discoverer, Dr Kate Charlton-Robb. The morning's talks will be followed by a foreshore and beach walk. On the Sunday, expert talks will be presented on the theme of the bay's natural history, followed by a fossil walk.

Each weekday of National Science Week will be celebrated with a different walk and talk with local experts. Each weekday event begins at 10am and takes one hour.

The second weekend of National Science Week at the Yacht Club brings more intriguing presentations on marine science. On the Saturday, four experts will discuss pollution issues and interventions in Port Phillip Bay, while the Sunday session's theme is "citizen science".

The variegated talks of National Science Week are sure to delight anyone young or old who is interested in sea life and conservation.

All sessions are free. Book via Eventbrite.
