If I wasn’t at AG I’d be digging dinosaurs…
It’s a big day in Queensland for Australia’s big dinosaurs. Today marks the official opening of the first stage of the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum.
The AG Society has been a proud supporter of Australian Age of Dinosaurs (AAOD) for a few years now, in fact AAOD are a great example of all the things that the AG Society can do.
First we had a fundraiser to “Free Wade” one of Winton’s biggest dinosaurs from his home in the iron stone of Central Queensland. Over $15000 was raised to help buy equipment to establish the AAOD Prep Shed on the property of David and Judy Elliott.
Then in late 2006 Dave & Judy were awarded the AG Society Conservationist of the Year Award, for their outstanding contributions to the preservation of Australia’s natural history.
With the formation of the new AAOD company we used some of our annual sponsorship budget to become one of the first ever Corporate Foundation members of Australian Age of Dinosaurs Ltd.
Congratulations to all involved with the AAOD project from all of us here at AG. We wish you all the success in the world with the project.
AAOD have just launched their new website where you can find out all about their project. Just head to the website.
Or take a look at what AG had to say about the dinosaurs of QLD back in 2006.
It includes some crazy comments from some lass from Sydney that you might recognise!
