Dr Haile says the megafauna project has demonstrated the value of international collaboration and shown that distance is no barrier in a globally connected world, with WA at the centre of research.

The study, published in Nature, was led by Professor Eske Willerslev, an ancient DNA researcher and director of the Centre for GeoGenetics at the Natural History Museum of Denmark.
