Friends' Day at Eric the Red West

Exciting news - we are planning to run our annual Friends' Day at Eric the Red West this year.
Eric the Red West is a bit past Apollo Bay near the Cape Otway Lighthouse.

At the moment, we have pencilled in the last Sunday of the dig - 21st February.

The vertebra that Jess found

I've heard from the lab that the vertebra that Jess found in week 3 just might be pterosaur.  And Dave Pickering tells me that there might be other pterosaur material from the 2015 dig as well. Exciting!

Save the date - Field Report Day

Field Report Day 2015 is being planned for the afternoon of Saturday 14 November, at Melbourne Museum.  Details to follow.

Dino Movie Screening raises over $2000

Our movie night raised more than $2000 which will go towards funding the 2016 Field Season.  Money is urgently needed to pay for accommodation, food and equipment so that we can find more dinosaurs, pterosaurs, marine reptiles turtles, and (of course) mammals.
Mike Cleeland and Dr Tom Rich introduced the movie, and then everyone seemed to have a great time watching people getting eaten by dinosaurs and many of us now want a raptor pack for Christmas.
Nicole Evered bought the winning raffle ticket and now has a beautiful hand-painted replica of the theropod claw we found in 2014.
Thanks to Jacquie Smith and the Rivoli Cinemas for organising.
