SVP action against Dinosaur Auction in Paris

November 20, 2018
SVP has discovered another auction house selling dinosaur fossils. As many know, the commercial selling of fossils is against the tenets of our society, and we are actively trying to discourage this practice. The auction will take place on the 21st of November via the auction house Artcurial, featuring the skeletons of Allosaurus and Camptosaurus. SVP leadership has written a letter to the auction house urging them not to sell these fossils, and questioning the legality of their collection in the U.S. For more information, please see the links below:
