Support for Scottish dinosaur research project
Middle Jurassic Scottish dinosaurs are a globally significant contribution to our understanding of dinosaur evolution as sites of this age worldwide are so rare.
I have been working on the dinosaurs from Scotland on the Isle of Skye for the last 28 years and have frequently bemoaned the fact that dinosaurs have not been found elsewhere in Scotland. I now have discovered some new dinosaur footprints in a completely different location and would like to be able to conduct a more modern mapping and analytical project to properly describe these footprints. The funding is to go towards the purchase of a suitable drone to help with the mapping and photographic record of the footprints in order to undertake referenced measurements of the effects of erosion on the footprints mostly by stormy seas over future years. The study, in association with the Geological Society of Glasgow, will also support student and public engagement in Middle Jurassic dinosaurs from Scotland through publication and public talks.

I am off to Skye this week and hope to be able to report on the state of the dinosaur footprints and other remains while I am there. If not, I will say what happened on my return. Thanks again!

Exciting Project. Can't wait to see the 3D mapping that the drone will generate.
