Previous Labs

In this Lab we are looking back millions of years to species that lived long ago with the WA Museum’s Mammal Curator, Dr. Kenny Travouillon. Kenny’s work describing new species of mammals sheds light on the evolution of iconic Australian animals by looking at species who have long been extinct.
Dive into the wonderful world of corals! In this Lab, meet Dr. Zoe Richards and learn about the amazing diversity of our Western Australian corals, the important role that they play, and how climate change can impact these creatures.
