Learn about the paleontological history of British Columbia, Canada. While the province holds fossils that span the full spectrum of the geologic time scale, arguably the true beginnings of our passion for paleontology begin with the 1988 find of a large marine reptile along the banks of the Puntledge River near Courtenay, BC. The find was a first for the province and for Mike Trask who has gone on to bring us our first dinosaur — a hadrosaur found not far from his elasmosaur discovery. That find sparked an excitement that led to the founding of the Vancouver Island Palaeontological Society, the British Columbia Paleontological Alliance and many other regional societies.
