Trilobite Lovers From Viet Nam

Recommended Posts

I am interested in knowing if there are TFF members out there who know about trilobite fossil sites in Viet Nam; or if you are in Viet Nam, interested in getting together to share collections and stories. I am living in Ha Noi but do travel a lot throughout the country.

Thanks.

I wish I knew that last time I was in Lao Cai on the way to Sapa! Anyways I can't wait to get back there again. What are the laws regarding fossil collecting in Viet Nam?

Hi Scylla. I am not sure but I think fossils are included in the VN Mineral Law (http://www.vietnamlaws.com/freelaws/MineralLaw20Mar96[X1051].pdf) since I have not seen a specific law to address the collection of fossils. From my own experience in VN, not many people are aware of any of these laws, even the local officials, regarding fossil collections. I would suggest just using common sense and good paleontology ethics.
