“The rich southern coastal waters of my country, the Bellarine Peninsula (balla-wein) are the lands of the Bengalat balug and Wadawurrung balug, saltwater people, who witnessed the seasonal blooms occurring over millennia. The microscopic marine life and events occurring in these waters go unseen, like spirits, responding to the seasons and pressures this world is placing upon them. Their health and connections, affect the vitality for life on this coast.” – Jenny Crompton
