Science, History and Community: Bringing the Dinosaur Coast story to life

Date: Wednesday 4th November 2020
Venue: UNDA Hall NDB10/101
Time: 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Also available via Zoom:

The Dinosaur Coast Management Group (DCMG) is a not-for-profit organisation, formed in 2015, to protect and promote the dinosaur tracks of the Dampier Peninsula and to educate the public about their cultural and scientific importance, in particular, the work of palaeontologist Dr Steve Salisbury from the University of Queensland

With a broad body of research, local knowledge and a strong community of volunteers the DCMG is proactively putting research and local knowledge into practice. In this seminar Micklo and Wade will talk about the ongoing relationship between scientists, community and the dinosaur trackways, and how knowledge is being translated for the community through the development of simple and high-tech products.

DCMG is raising the profile of the region’s ancient and rare dinosaur trackways and has become the local representative body for consultation on all things “dinosaur tracks”. DCMG’s future aspirations are to support enterprise and research through a world class Broome Dinosaur Coast Interpretive Centre and Dinosaur Coast Trail.

Presenters: Micklo Corpus & Wade Freeman
