Royal Society of Victoria Statement

Updates on 14 Feb , 2015

Read the Royal Society of Victoria Position Statement on the planned Beaumaris Marina. The Royal Society of Victoria has been part of Melbourne’s intellectual life since 1854:

“The locality is recognized as the most important of its type in Australia and arguably has international significance.”

“Part of the fossil site has already been built over by the existing facilities of the Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron (BMYS). The Society opposes any further development that has the potential to inhibit access to the fossil beds for scientists and the general public alike. As well, the Society supports calls for the establishment of a new reserve that recognizes the scientific significance of the Beaumaris fossil site and protects it for future generations.”
