Fossils and Dinosaurs

The Courtenay and District Museum, which is physically located in British Columbia, Canada offers plenty of great online resources for paleontology enthusiasts around the world. The museum is a highly regarded and frequently visited hub for fossil sites and exhibitions; the Fossil and Dinosaurs section of their website replicates many of these great resources. Users new to paleontology study will want to begin with the Introduction to Paleontology sub-section, which discusses some basic terminology and taxonomy. The Our Marine Fossil Videos and Fossil Castings sub-sections provide exciting virtual demonstrations of fossil identifications. Plus, the Fun for Kids tab contains a selection of games and puzzles for young people seeking a hands-on way to learn about paleontology (and even a quiz to test their knowledge after). The Courtenay and District Museum has been a staple for studying "fossils, geology, First Nations history, [and] pioneer settlement history," among other topics, since it was established in 1961.
