IT WAS the curiosity, unerring patience, tenacity, and sheer hard work of Professor Pat Vickers-Rich and her husband Dr Tom Rich that led to the amazing fossil discoveries in the Otways.
Her uncle was horrified, but Pat had unwittingly begun her scientific path in life.
At university Pat met her future husband Tom Rich, who was turned on to prehistory when he received the book All About Dinosaurs in 1953 as a Christmas gift.
Dr Rich is Senior Curator of Vertebrate Palaeontology & Palaeobotany at Museum Victoria and Professor Pat Vickers-Rich is Monash University's Chair of Palaeontology and founding Director of the Monash Science Centre.
Both from the United States, Tom and Pat emigrated to Australia in the Seventies.
"We decided if we came to Australia there were more chances of discovering something new, there weren't many palaeontologists doing anything and we don't like crowds," said Pat.
Pat said they began prospecting these sites from Fairhaven to Port Fairy over the next five summers.
Pat and Tom led digs at Dinosaur Cove over the next decade which resulted in them naming a variety of new polar dinosaurs.
"Diversity here in the Otways is very high," Pat said.
