Our research is conducted in our laboratory and collections room. The collections room contains over 1000 fossil specimens and houses a fossil mold & replication station. The collections room has over 1000 containing around 900 fossils specimens, there are further workstations and a mold and replication workstation. Our volunteer program is a great success and much of our prep work in the lab and fossil replication is conducted by trained volunteers. This is rather unique, but it works very well. The fossil collection is now digitized and uploaded onto the website for perusal by researchers worldwide. We also have numerous scientific journals published with more which are work in progress.
