Here's a quick quizz: what's the dominant form of life of Earth?  Humans...dinosaurs...insects?

None of the above! If you consider the entire lifespan of our planet, the creatures that have spanned the longest are stromatolites. Not only are they are the earliest fossil evidence of life, their time here far outlasts other forms of life. Plus they released vast quantities of oxygen into the atmosphere - which enabled life such as you and I.

Hamelin Station is operated by Australian Bush Heritage to conserve this precious landscape on the edge of the World Heritage area.

Michelle and Ken Judd are the station managers talk to Rod about what it means to run a place like this.
