My brother loved palaeontology, and at the age of 24 he had devoted much of his university and work life to it. The trip down the coast was to look at camping and boat launching sites in preparation for a dig with myself, my father and Dr Aaron Camens from the Flinders University Palaeontology laboratory where James worked.
Because of his love for palaeontology, we can not think of a better way to ensure that James lives on than passing this passion on to future generations. In conjunction with Associate Professor Gavin Prideaux, James' mentor and employer at the Flinders University Palaeontology lab, we are starting a scholarship in James' name. The scholarship will be aimed senior high school students, primarily from a rural area, to participate in a dig (location to be decided from year to year), then participate in laboratory preparation and processing of the samples.
So if you believe in inspiring school students, love palaeontology, or want to contribute to the furthering of knowledge about our natural world, contribute and share with your friends.
