dig Issue Summary

Australia (April 2006)

G'day, mate! Ready for some real adventure? You'll need hiking boots and a water bottle, as we have miles of terrain to cover. DIG is heading to Australia in April. Our first stop is checking out the new information on who killed the megafauna - was it climate change or overhunting? Next, we'll scour the shoreline for clues to shipwrecks - especially anything that can tell us what happened to the Batavia. Waterlogged planks aren't all you'll find - the waters here were whaling grounds, and there's much still to learn about who, what, and when. Intrigued? Good - Australia is waiting and DIG can't wait to share it with you!
