5. Collecting in the Shallows
Watch the team’s exploits as they shovel, sieve, slurp, and even shimmy mollusks from the beautiful beaches of Queensland’s Moreton Bay. You’ll see some of the fascinating shallow-water species that inhabit seagrass beds, sandflats, and other unusual habitats exposed by the large tidal range along Australia’s coast.
