BBPI In The Media!

We believe that scientists have no greater responsibility than to communicate their work, sharing their discoveries to inspire others in the pursuit of knowledge.
 

We don't seek the "limelight" . . . 

. . . but we understand that it is an opportunity to educate, inform, and inspire - all responsibilities at the heart of our mission.  

The BBPI's research and field work has garnered a great deal of attention recently, and there's certainly a lot more on the way.  Check this page often to see how and where we're making a splash!

CNN's The Great Big Story joined us during the 2016 Field Expedition hoping to learn how paleontology and paleontological field work - typically done with shovels, pick axes, and good old fashioned brute force - are being transformed by technology.

One of the most incredible stories in the history of paleontology: the discovery of two halves of the type specimen of Atlantochelys - a giant Cretaceous sea turtle - more than 160 years and several miles apart.  Truly astounding!
