Do you have ice age animal bones, teeth, or tusks found in British Columbia, and want to learn more about them? Or share a story about them? If so, the British Columbia Megafauna Project wants to hear from you!

 

Ice age animal remains are dispersed across museums and private collections and there is no synthesis on the condition of these specimens, their species, their provenience, their age, or to when they date. In effort to remedy this, we are a research group based at Simon Fraser University looking to partner with individuals to better understand the Late Pleistocene in British Columbia. Our goal is to know when these animals lived (from radiocarbon dating), information on their health and age (from the bones), composition of their diet, and how and where they moved across ice age British Columbia (using stable isotope analysis).

 

We are traveling the province to visit collections this summer. If you are interested in analysis, we can do minimally invasive sampling on-site, and will not take away your bone, tusk, or tooth. All results will be shared with participants, and participants will be gratefully acknowledged (or maintain anonymity) in SFU Megafauna Project research.

 

For questions, more information, or to discuss collection specimens, we can be contacted on this forum, and at: Archaeology Isotope Lab: archiso@sfu.ca Phone: 778 782 5045 Website: https://www.sfu.ca/megafauna.html
