Sub-Zero Fossil Hunting with
Dr. Philip J. Currie:
The Search for Polar Dinosaurs
Thursday, April 29
7:00 P.M. MDT
Join palaeontologist Dr. Philip J. Currie as he shares his experiences working on fossil hunting expeditions in some of the world's coldest climates.
Finding and excavating dinosaur fossils is never easy. Doing so in the Arctic, and on the remote continent of Antarctica, is exponentially harder. Fossil hunting in these inhospitable and hard-to-access locations requires hammering through frozen rock, surviving extreme weather, and safely navigating dangerous terrain.
So why would a palaeontologist like Dr. Currie spend his time dinosaur hunting in such remote, frigid climates? The answer: because even the smallest polar fossils reveal previously undiscovered mysteries...
This event features:
Engaging presentation by Dr. Currie, followed by an open Q&A with participants.
