Longspined Sea Urchins (Centrostephanus rodgersii) were once rare outside NSW, but warming waters and a strengthening East Australian Current have seen them extend their range south, causing devastation to sections of Tasmania’s east coast reefs.
This exhibition tells the story of these urchin invaders – the problem, the science, and the solution. Immerse yourself in the urchin story, understand what’s being done to control this invasive species, see live urchins, and more. Urchins beware… we’re coming for you!
