Triceratops joins the herd at the Gondwana Garden – Denmark Sanctuary
by Basil Schur, Denmark Green Skills
A new dinosaur sculpture has been added to the Gondwana Garden at Green Skills’s Denmark Sanctuary building.Created by local artist Fred Pearce, the ferocious looking creature is actually a harmless Triceratops.
Triceratops was an herbivore, existing mostly on shrubs and other plant life. Its beak-like mouth was best suited for grasping and plucking rather than biting, according to a 1996 analysis in the journal Evolution. It also likely used its horns and bulk to tip over taller plants.

Searching for the elusive Hooded Plover
On Sunday 12th November 2017, the Albany Bird Group and Green Skills conducted an outing to survey birds at Lake Anderson, that forms part of the Balicup Wetland Suite, north of the Stirling Range National Park. 12 people participated in the day which was led by Anne Bondin of the Albany Bird Group and Basil Schur of Green Skills.
