Famous fossil site Blue Beach, Nova Scotia Canada is paving the path for future researchers.
"There needs to be a new paleontology centre developed here to establish a permanent foothold for this fossil collection" said Mansky.

Blue Beach, Nova Scotia, Canada - A Fossil Enthusiasts Dream! :)
...There are very few regions of the world in which fossils of the earliest land vertebrates (tetrapods: the first members of the group to which humans, along with other mammals, birds and reptiles ultimately derive) can be found.

These fossil are key to closing a gap in the fossil record that has existed for about 11 decades. This hiatus had denied scientists a deep understanding of how tetrapods lived and evolved their terrestrial adaptations....Dr. Jennifer A. Clack ScD FRS
Emeritus Professor of Vertebrate Palaeontology University Museum of Zoology - Cambridge, United Kingdom

"The Blue Beach Fossil Museum has done a remarkable job in the preservation, protection, study and interpretation of the Blue Beach fossils for the benefit of all. I sincerely hope the Blue Beach Fossil Museum Society soon finds a founding patron to champion their important project; this valuable collection now exceeds the capacities of the current small museum and deserves the kind of infrastructure normally accorded to collections of such rank." Dr. Spencer G. Lucas, PhD Curator of Paleontology - NMMNH, USA

You Can Help Build a 'Paleo-Centre' at Blue Beach, Nova Scotia Canada

The first large and very impressive fin-print discovered in the early 1960’s; it was later described as the track of a large amphibian. It is now believed otherwise; we here at Blue Beach regard this giant trackway to be a trail of the big fish preserved in stone.

... In a time when ‘junk’ science in the form of so-called ‘intelligent design’ is on the ascendant in some regions, the early Carboniferous fossils of Blue Beach provide one of the most outstanding opportunities for contributing to evolutionary science education in Canada. I believe that in supporting this initiative to build a 'Paleo-Centre' we will help create a lasting and significant educational and cultural resource for all Canadians.--- Leo Elshof, PhD., Science and Technology Education, Acadia University School of Education, Wolfville, Nova Scotia Canada
