Undergrad students get private look at Naracoorte caves

Undergraduate Bachelor of Sciences students at the University of Adelaide travelled to Naracoorte for a private, upclose look at both the caves and the fossils found within them.

Forty six students who were enrolled in the Evolution of the Australian Biota course had a four day field trip to the UNESCO World Hertiage Listed caves.

Environment Institute researcher Dr Liz Reed took the students through the caves and allowed them to sort through 60,000 years of fossils gathered from the caves. The students enjoyed the experience, and said they loved the opportunity to be hands on with the fossils, and for their trouble were featured in the Naracoorte Herald.
