Last weekend veteran fisheries officer and avid marine photographer Brett Vercoe went looking for dugongs in Moreton Bay, and discovered two things that shocked and surprised him. The seagrass beds of the bay, a marine park off the Queensland capital of Brisbane, are a prime grazing area for sea cows, an herbivorous marine mammal, and the only place in the world where they can be seen close to a major city.

Vercoe found them, and then he found something that horrified him at Moreton Banks, the shallow waters west of the southern end of Moreton Island – dead green turtles that drowned after becoming ensnared in rope and wreckage dumped in the bay. Here’s the footage the NSW DPI Fisheries officer, who works at the Solitary Islands Marine Park off Coffs Harbour in NSW, took.

On Friday, TV host and author Amanda Knox announced on Instagram that she and her boyfriend novelist Christopher Robinson are engaged to be married. The proposal was sci-fi-themed and it caught Knox off guard. The video began with her sewing in their Seattle, Washington, home. She is distracted by a loud sound. Outside, she finds what appears to be a glowing, smoking meteorite accompanied by a digital tablet that describes their love story. Knox is baffled. “I had been thinking about this, but it’s already happened in the future,” Robinson said. “It’s happening now. I don’t have a ring, but I do have a big rock. Will you stay with me until the last star in the last galaxy burns out and even after that? Amanda Marie Knox, will you marry me?” She said yes! The engagement comes over a decade after Knox was accused of killing her roommate while studying abroad in Italy.
