Anita and Laban will weave their way through tapestry of marine habitats and portside industry to reveal a remarkable coexistence - a wealth of marine life living along side industry, shipping, wharves and pipelines. From mysterious mangroves, beautiful coral reefs, exotic sponge gardens and gas pipelines, these two young locals will help the museum scientists investigate the secrets of this rich archipelgo.
