PS Supports Tribute to Mary Anning

Mary Anning Rocks Initiative

The Paleontological Society is pleased to announce that we have become a Patron supporter of the initiative to design and emplace a stature of Mary Anning in Lyme Regis, England. We are excited to be part of this initiative that was led by 13-year-old Evie Swire as part of “Mary Anning Rocks” team.

Mary Anning was a legendary fossil collector extraordinaire during the first half of the 19th century. The fossils that Mary Anning discovered along the Jurassic Coast (now a World Heritage site) were fundamental to the then-emerging science of palaeontology in the UK and Europe. 

With this donation we therefore celebrate the immense contributions of Mary Anning to the advancement of our science.
