Dinosaur tracks in Western Australia
If you’re a good detective, you should be able to solve this Geo Quiz quickly. First clue: there are footprints leading right up to the spot – 130 million-year-old, fossilized dinosaur footprints. They are in a northern region of Western Australia that looks out to the Indian Ocean.
The answer is the Kimberley region along Western Australia’s coast. Anchor Marco Werman speaks with Steve Salisbury, a paleontologist at the University of Queensland, about this paleontological site*, and the risk it will be disrupted by plans to develop a natural gas facility.
