The North Peace Economic Development Commission is showing support for paleontology in the Peace with a large donation.

On Wednesday, the Commission presented the Peace Region Paleontology Research Centre with a $5,000 donation. The money will be supporting the B.C. back country dinosaur fossil exploration this summer.

After conducting preliminary surveys of new locations, the Centre officials say certain sites show signs of late Cretaceous dinosaur skeletons.

Centre officials also say there are signs that duck-billed and horned dinosaurs, as well as tyrannosaurus rex once roamed northeast B.C.

Known dig sites exist in Hudson’s Hope, Pink Mountain, Tumbler Ridge and Fort St. John.

Commission Chair Dan Davies, says “after seeing these sites, it would be a shame not to support the research centre, as it has a very positive impact on the entire region.”

This is not the first donation the Commission has made to support the Centre. Davies says the Commission has previously helped fund similar projects.
