THROMBOLITE (MICROBIALITE) COMMUNITY
STATUS: CRITICALLY ENDANGERED
Thrombolites are structures formed by microbial communities. Situated in the Internationally Protected Ramsar 482 region and with scientists claiming they are billions of years old, we should be doing everything to protect them. In Dreamtime these are the eggs of the Woggle, they made all the lakes, rivers and water ways. But we are killing them.
