Wildlife Queensland Bayside Branch speaker this month is Doug Miller, who is a Volunteer digger & dinosaur bone fossil preparatory with the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History (AAOD) in Winton, is recognised as an Honorary Technician by AAOD. and volunteers for The Queensland Museum as a dinosaur fossil bone preparator. His presentation will show you what happens on a dinosaur dig. You will see the techniques used to extract the fossils, protect them and transport them to the AAOD museum. Once in the museum the fossils have to be cleaned so the palaeontologists can commence the long process of identifying the creature. He will also introduce you to some of the dinosaurs that have been found including Australia’s most complete carnivorous dinosaur, Banjo.
