Fossils, Food, and [Mega] Fauna – Research Seminar

Step into the shoes of a palaeontologist with us, in this exclusive Macquarie University student-led seminar all about the weird and wonderful world of fossils and fossil-finding.

Connect with us to uncover the incredible uniqueness of Australia’s fossils and natural heritage!

If you ever discovered a fossil or an Indigenous artefact, maybe while walking along the beach, would you have any idea what to do with it? Join us for a discussion with Sally Hurst, founder of the Found a Fossil project and hear about how YOUR voice can help protect the amazing heritage we have in Australia.
Then hear from student Amber Dickson as she dives deeper into the fascinating world of palaeontology, to look at just how much we can learn from the fossils of animals, including their appearance, diet, and even aspects of their health! Finally, listen to Divyesh Lal as he tells stories of ancient Australian megafauna – giant kangaroos and wombats, and how the arrival of humans may have led to their untimely demise.
