Collaborate with Paleourbana

Paleourbana's map has more than 250 sites of urban fossils in 54 cities around the world. Many of these sites have been sent by urban fossils fans that have made their discoveries in their cities. Do you want to collaborate with Paleourbana and help making a larger map of urban fossils? It is really easy! You just need a camera – you can even use your phone – and a keen eye to discover the urban fossils that are hidden in your neighborhood. On Paleourbana's collaborate section you can find more details about the information you have to send to make the page of a new urban fossil site. You don't need to identify all the specimens. If you have any questions, I will be happy to help. Paleourbana has recently received some exciting examples of urban fossils. Raúl Rivas (@RaulRivasG) has found astonishing ammonoids in Salamanca, whereas Ricardo López (@sotolon) has shared the fossil gastropods hidden in Zaragoza's 'Puente de Piedra'. There are many other urban fossils hidden somewhere, waiting to be found by you… perhaps not far from your home. Get involved! Read More…
