Celebrate the Dinosaur Coast is organised by the Dinosaur Coast Management Group (DCMG) in partnership with the Roebuck Bay Working Group (RBWG). Micklo Corpus, DCMG Chairperson said, ‘This is a great opportunity for the whole community to learn more about the dinosaurs who used to call Broome and beyond home.’ RBWG Project Manager Kandy Curran said, ‘this is a stand out for 2017, with lots of hands on dinosaurian activities led by two of Australia’s leading paleontologists.’
Research published in Society of Vertebrate Paleontology Memoir 16 (Mar 2017) has captured international and national attention. Led by Dr Steve Salisbury (University of Queensland), the work established the rich diversity of well-preserved tracks on the Yanijarri-Lurrajarri section of the Dampier Peninsula coastline as unparalleled.
Roebuck Bay Working Group is comprised of Traditional Owners and government, local community, conservation groups and business. We work collaboratively to solve issues, raise awareness and encourage research and monitoring which supports responsible management and protection of Roebuck Bay.
