Saving fossil whales in Virginia
Check out this project on Petridish.org! Here’s a brief description from their page about why they are in need to raise funds:
It is rare for a vertebrate paleontologist to excavate a site with a 100% certainty of recovering fossils. Carmel Church is just such a site, giving us a very high data return on investment. However, the site is at risk due to high erosion rates and possible future development. We are attempting to save as many fossils as we can before they’re lost forever.
