Cooper - Publishing Partner Opportunities

The Eromanga Natural History Museum is seeking partner organisations to help bring the storybook of Australia's largest dinosaur to fruition.

Finding Cooper is almost ready for print and with your partnership, we can bring this quality work of Australian natural history into homes, schools and libraries.

The book begins by taking readers on a journey alongside Cooper as he faces the challenges of survival through his vulnerable rst years. From the time he hatches as a foot-long sauropodlet, Cooper must keep ahead of his nemesis, Timimus until he outgrows the predator and can join his herd.

Based heavily on scientic evidence of the environment, species behaviours and known events of the time, this gorgeous tale has been carefully constructed to guide the reader's imagination through the Cretaceous wetlands of southwestern Queensland.

Contact Robyn Mackenzie for information on publishing partner opportunities.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between megafauna fossils and dinosaur fossils?

Dinosaurs are reptiles that went extinct 64 million years ago. They grew to gigantic sizes.  They lived in a time when Australia was a very different place to what it is today, and part of the ancient landmass called Gondwana. The Eromanga dinosaurs are estimated to be 95-98 million years old and lived during the late Cretaceous.

Megafauna are the group of animals that evolved after the dinosaurs died.  They were very large marsupials, reptiles and flightless birds and went extinct about 20,000 years ago.  Some of their descendants still exist today in much smaller forms such as kangaroos, wombats, komodo dragons and crocodiles.  The Eulo megafauna lived during Pleistocene approximately 50,000 to 100,000 years ago.
