Always dreamed of being a fossil hunter? Now’s your chance – and you don’t have to leave home.
A citizen science project called FossilFinder is asking volunteers to look through high-resolution photos of the Turkana basin in Kenya taken from drones and kites, with the hope that they will spot newly exposed fossils before they erode away.
The team at Zooniverse ask you to help them document what is seen on surface images, including fossil fragments and other artifacts, to assist them in reconstructing past landscapes and environments. More eyes, more information, more discoveries.
