News in Review Canada's Famous Dinosaur Hunter

Dinosaur Provincial Park in southeast Alberta is a fossil hunter’s paradise. More than 300 first-quality dinosaur skeletons have been found there since digging began more than a century ago. It’s also one of the favourite hunting grounds of Canada’s world-famous palaeontologist Phil Currie. In this News in Review story we’ll travel to Dinosaur Park to meet Currie and show you why he calls the park his special sandbox. We’ll also show you what he’s doing to try to recruit a new generation of dinosaur hunters.
