Awesome Accreditation

Wednesday, April 04, 2018

Over the period of the last few months of 2017 ENHM has been working hard to get accredited with the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP).

Accreditation now opens up opportunities for the museum to be in the running for prestigious awards at the Australian and Regional Tourism Award Ceremonies.   ...read more

Very Eager Volunteers

Tuesday, April 03, 2018

Imagine the mammoth task of being placed in front of a bucket of megafauna mud and being told to find fossils the size of a pin head. Well this was the task ahead for our newest volunteer Steve Young. A commercial photographer from coughs harbor enjoys the small finer things in life, like taking photos of minuscule fungi’s. Luckily for us, Steve wanted to develop he interest in microscopic things and share his skills with us and help build our collection. After two weeks of working through less than a millimeter in size sediments, Steve’s collection of finds was extensive and exciting and including that of a partial lower jaw from a small 100,000-year-old Gekkonid. With a heavy heart Steve left us and will be returning again later in the year.   ...read more

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’.
