ABC Radio Interview - Dinosaur Digs

Monday, May 28, 2018

Interview with ABC Radio Western Qld, Ollie Wykeham and Robyn Mackenzie ENHM, 25/5/18 ENHM Dinosaur Dig 2018.

Dinosaur dig unearths huge dinosaur bones from a very extensive bone bed west of Eromanga. Dinosaur diggers and Santos are helping to fund these digs and they are getting an experience of a lifetime. Preparing these bones takes a long time and now the museum needs funding to help cover the costs of training and employing fossil preparators.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if a fossil site is discovered?

After looking at the fossils ensure all fragments are left where they were found in the field as this is crucial to discovering more bones in the same area. Do not disturb site but take a GPS reading and photos. If possible mark the site with a star picket and contact the Eromanga Natural History Museum for a scientific analysis.

Look at the ENHM on-line resources ‘How to recognise dinosaur sites in the Cooper Basin’.
