New zygomaturus sculpture for visitor centre

zygoThe AMRTA has installed a new sculpture in front of the Margaret River Visitor Centre, to celebrate the region’s megafauna heritage. The scultpure of the zygomaturus mother and young was produced by talented local artist and AMRTA Cave Guide Alan Meyburgh.

Alan advised that “The aim is to create awareness for megafauna because a lot of fossil discoveries have been made in the area, particularly in the caves. Mammoth Cave was the first [cave] megafauna fossil site found in WA, and is one of the most important paleontological sites in Australia.”

The sculpture is one of a series which will make up a megafauna trail, encouraging visitor dispersal throughout the region.

We can only imagine the number of tourist photos this latest addition will appear in over the coming weeks!
