Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to Science

>In this forum, we promote and celebrate our amateur contributions to the paleontological sciences. There are many volunteer opportunities to play an important role in furthering the science, and to learn new skills. Whether by volunteering their time (lab work, collections maintenance, organized field work), or through the donation of significant specimens, to scientific institutions, amateurs have always played an important but unheralded part!

>The pinned topic "Fossil Contributions to Paleontology - The Gallery" is an annotated image archive of member-found specimens now residing in museum collections; further discussion of them will be found in linked topics in this forum. ADDING YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THIS THREAD WILL EARN THE PARTNER AWARD FOR YOUR PROFILE.

>All the other topics in this forum are for the discussion of amateurs' collaboration with professionals; science at its best.
