We are vertebrate paleontology




The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology is a diverse organization of scientists, students, artists, preparators, advocates, writers and scholars across the globe, who are dedicated to the study, discovery, interpretation and preservation of vertebrate fossils.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 1940 for educational and scientific purposes. We provide a global forum for vertebrate paleontologists through our publications and annual meetings, as well as information for the public about vertebrate paleontology and related topics.
