Today we have a special guest entry from the president of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, Phil Currie. Dr. Currie, now at the University of Alberta, has been involved and led a number of groundbreaking research efforts throughout his career, and he has been recognized for this work in a number of ways, not least being his election as the president of our Society. I join him in wishing everyone a happy National Fossil Day!
Happy National Fossil Day™!
As an organization committed to advancing the study of fossil vertebrates, promoting education, and to the conservation and preservation of fossil sites, the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) is excited to see the abundance of celebratory events taking place across the U.S. Our thanks to the National Park Services and the American Geological Institute for spearheading this event, and to all the members and friends of SVP who are participating at local and national levels.
National Fossil Day™ is playing an important role in promoting a greater appreciation of the scientific and educational value of fossils. Visit the official National Fossil Day™ website for activities, videos, and the official National Fossil Day Song©.
