    Story

    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.

      The footprints are circled in red and there is a 14cm scale circled in blue.

      The Skye trip was a great success in learning how to fly the drone and producing a decent map of some new dinosaur footprints. The photo may not be easy to interpret, but the footprints are visible.

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
