PaleoServices provides paleontological resource mitigation services for a variety of projects including:
Because paleontological resources are an important part of our natural heritage, their destruction is considered by state and federal directives to represent a negative environmental impact. Fortunately, such negative impacts can be mitigated.
Typical mitigation programs include on-site monitoring of active excavations, discovery and recovery of exposed fossils, transportation of recovered specimens to a professional preparation/conservation laboratory, laboratory-based preparation and curation of recovered fossils, and permanent storage of curated fossils in regional repositories/museums where they are available for present and future generations of citizens, students, and professional scientists.
Our experience in the field makes us the perfect choice for paleontological consulting services.
