WEST Australians are being encouraged to volunteer as dinosaur ‘keepers’ for the Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous exhibition which opens in Perth next month.

The exhibition features 23 life-size animatronic models of some of the most extraordinary creatures ever to walk the earth at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre from September 20 until January 28.

The exhibition is expected to bring thousands of people into the CBD, boosting the local economy.

“The Western Australian Museum is expecting thousands of national and international visitors to visit this exhibition, so they need enthusiastic volunteers to enhance their experience,” Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman said.

“Volunteers don’t need any experience as all of the necessary training will be provided by the WA Museum.

“I am sure volunteering at the dinosaur discovery exhibition with its giant life-size animatronic models and other features will be fun for anyone who wants to give up some of their time.”

Special training will be provided for volunteers.
