Dinosaurs Fighting Depression in the Bush

Thursday, December 01, 2016

Dinosaurs are fighting depression in the bush. That's according to some locals from Eromanga.

It's being called 'the new CWA' with women getting together, not to bake scones, but instead, to chip away at an ancient dinosaur bone.

Fiona Ferguson from Belombre Station and Wendy Groves from Cooma, Eromanga sat down with Elly Bradfield in a dry creek bed and explained how.

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’.
