Awarded to both a regional and a metropolitan student, the prize enables them to participate in an expedition with Flinders palaeontologists and to help curate fossils from the expedition in the Flinders Palaeontology Laboratory.
2019 James Moore Memorial Prize recipient Laluloy Bucar from Edward John Eyre High School in Whyalla, says, ‘Studying palaeontology gives us a greater understanding of Earth’s history, which is vital to fixing in global issues such as global warming and climate change and its impact on Earth’s biodiversity and physical environment.’
Without palaeontology, we would only have a narrow mindset to fix such issues. Sometimes we must look to the past to find our answers.’
Flinders University, together with the Moore family, encourage you to donate to the fund to ensure James’ passion for palaeontology can continue to inspire school students to unearth their future.
100% of your tax-deductible donation will support the James Moore Memorial Prize at Flinders University.
