THE REAL DIRT

Searching For Life on Earth

October 2nd, 2014 · No Comments · News

I remember once being at the Tollgate Islands, offshore from Batemans Bay with Royal Botanic Gardens seaweed expert, Dr Alan Millar, as he emerged from a scuba dive holding a grab bag of specimens that he wanted to investigate. Once he had taken out his regulator and emerged from the waters of the Batemans Marine Park, he said: “Forget about searching for life on Mars, I’m looking for life on Earth!”

Today there is another story reminding us how much is yet to be discovered in our marine environments:
