The Royal Tyrrell Museum's exciting new exhibit, Grounds for Discovery, showcases many marvellous fossil specimens that were discovered accidentally through industrial activity. The exhibit is a testament to Alberta’s collaborative relationships between palaeontologists and major corporations, like the energy giant Suncor. We had the pleasure of discussing the unique premise behind the exhibit with Dr. Don Brinkman, the Royal Tyrrell Museum's Director of Preservation and Research. He also discusses the exhibits incredible specimens, including the now famous Nodosaur.
