Our research is conducted in our laboratory and collections room. The collections room has over 1000 drawers containing around 1500 fossils specimens, there are further workstations and a mold and replication workstation. Much of our prep work in the lab and fossil replication is conducted by our Lab Technician and trained volunteers. 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.
