re: protecting fossils

PaleoParks sounds like a good idea.


We lost the great spinosaurus skeleton in Germany during WW2 - mostly due to 
idiotic Nazi bureacracy about getting it moved to an underground shelter.

During the Iraq initial invasion, the authorities did not move much of the 
museum pieces of Babylonian and Assyrian finds, resulting in some small weapons 
damage but alot of looting damage.
I was wondering if there was much in the way of Iraqi dinosaur/paleo-life 
museum fossils prior to the war, and if it is known if any of it was damaged 
during the war?  I've never run across a news story about the subject.
