Volunteers Volunteers

Volunteers are invited to join Kronosaurus Korner for both short and long term activities.

 

Volunteer programs are only offered at limited times when Curator of Palaeontology Dr Tim Holland t is available.

 

Volunteers have shared the experience of updating the catalogue of fossils; preparing fossils in the laboratory and  fossicking. All Volunteers receive an induction and 'on the job' training.

 

Pictured below is Barb Flewelling who stayed with us for 3 weeks after participating in a turtle dig, with partner Gary, during Science Week in August 2008.  Gary and Barb are now VIP Volunteers of Kronosaurus Korner, and were lucky to find a complete fish specimen on the dig - now on display in Kronosaurus Korner.

 

Barb is preparing the turtle - which is also on display in Kronosaurus Korner.

 

You too can be a volunteer by completing the Volunteer Registration Form or by contacting Kronosaurus Korner on 1300 KRONOK.
