At Queensland Museum South Bank there is a space developed in partnership with ENERGEX. It is ENERGEX Playasaurus Place and features our much loved life-sized dinosaurs and a colourful exploration of the story of energy.
Packed with interactives and things to explore, ENERGEX Playasaurus Place focuses on a positive and sustainable future, while exploring energy, climate change, ancient animals and plants, and what we can do to make a difference.
Visitors can trace the story of energy throughout the ages, from the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth through to the industrial revolution and on to today.
Find out more about the ENERGEX Playasaurus Place at the following link.
Queensland Museum South Bank will be running a holiday program in January 2011 called I Dig Dinos which has a target audience of age three to ten. Children can dig up a dinosaur in Dino Detectives and become a dinosaur in Gondwana. More information can be obtained on the Queensland Museum South Bank website.

Climate change is one of the theories put forward to explain the extinction of the dinosaurs. Today, climate change and global warming are having an impact on the Great Barrier Reef. Increased sea temperature affects the functioning of reef species and has led to significant coral bleaching episodes in the past. Other human activities are affecting reef ecosystems at present.
Further discussion of these factors can be viewed at the following links.
