Our Mission Statement
Kronosaurus Korner aims to provide a place where local and regional fossils can be stored, conserved, researched, prepared and displayed. Kronosaurus Korner aims to educate the local community and public in general about all matters palaeontological.
Richmond Shire Council took over control and management of the entire Marine Fossil Museum complex on May 1, 1999, and renamed it Kronosaurus Korner. It is now run by an Incorporated Body of which the Mayor and councillors and one town member are the Board of Directors, with the Council's Chief Executive Officer the secretary/treasurer.
Kronosaurus Korner operates as a not for profit incorporated body under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 – Incorporation Number IA20730 - for the following reasons:
- it is wholly owned by the Richmond Shire Council on behalf of the community;
- it allows management of the centre based on business outcomes;
- the structure enables us to employee staff under the General Retail Award
- the structure allows us to offer tax incentives to donors and sponsors
