Tourism businesses to share in $1.8 million Digital Grant funding

Eromanga Natural History Museum, located in one of Australia’s paleontological hotspots in South West Queensland, is one of 25 Queensland tourism and tourism-related businesses who have been awarded funding through round three of the Small Business Digital Grants program. More than half of these businesses were located outside of South East Queensland.

Robyn MacKenzie, Operations and Collection Manager at the Museum, says they will use the grant to establish an online shop and e-newsletter.

“We’re excited to receive this grant so we can expand the museum shop online and reach a broader audience through our e-newsletter,” says Ms MacKenzie.

The Small Business Digital Grants Program provides small businesses with access to digital technologies and services to enable them to work smarter, engage with the global economy and make the most of online business opportunities arising from digital disruption.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Holotype?

A holotype is a valuable original specimen that describes a new species.  It is a term used to describe a specimen that is the first known of its kind anywhere in the world.  A holotype can be any type of fossil, and it serves as the name-bearer of the species.  Even if a better specimen is found, the holotype is not superseded.  These are rare and exciting discoveries, which help fill important gaps in the fossil record. 

Every animal and plant that is scientifically described is represented by a holotype.  If a scientist wishes to study the unique traits of a species, it is usually the holotype specimen they study.  The holotypes are the crown jewels of any museum collection.  These priceless specimens need to be stored and conserved at standards that meet the Code of International Zoological Nomenclature.
