It is a little-known fact that the cold, but nutrient-rich coastal waters of South Australia are teeming with marine life. One of those occasions is Cuttlefest, when thousands of giant cuttlefish congregate to breed and lay their eggs. The NGO ‘Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries’ (EMS) made it their mission to give people access to such events who might normally not get the chance. EMS takes local underprivileged school kids and people with disabilities out to be part of the marine world.

Our guest and underwater photographer took this picture during Cuttlefest.

Our hosts Chantelle and Cat chat to the EMS co-founder Carl Charter about the struggles to protect South Australian marine parks and the joys of taking people out to see incredible marine life who have never seen anything like this before.

Do you wanna be part of next year’s Cuttlefest? Visit the EMS website for more info.
