Dinos in France
In light of recent discussions in this forum concerning
dinosaur fossils in France, it is appropriate to announce an upcoming paleontology
expedition to southern France. This fall, Dinamation International Society
and Dr. Eric Buffetaut will lead excavations in quarries near the small
town of Esperaza, in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
In the last seven years, quarries with names such
as Garonne, Merignon, and Aude have yielded the remains of armored sauropods,
raptors, as well as dozens of eggs from the uppermost Cretaceous. These
important specimens are housed in a new museum nearby, the first museum
in all Europe devoted solely to dinosaur paleontology.
The goal of this expedition is to help bolster the
research collections of the Esperaza Dinosaur Museum and support
the research and education efforts of this important new center of dinosaur
This expedition is open to all interested parties
on a first come first serve basis. The fee includes round trip airfare
from New York's JFK; transportation; double occupancy accommodations; all
meals; and admission to local museums and attractions.
