Dinosaur Provincial Park

 Dinosaur Provincial Park is located in Alberta Canada Region Europe and North America.

The park is situated in the valley of Red Deer River,it is known for being one of the richest dinosaur fossil locales in the world.

Since early discoveries,paleontologist have found bones from over forty diffrent species,of dinosaurs in Southern Alberta.There has also been 500 complete dinosaurs skeletons some were unknown until their bones were found in Alberta.

In 1955 the government of Canada decided to protect the bones.And this is how Dinosaur Provincial Park was created.The park covers 28 square miles

According to park rules scientists are still aloud to dig up the dinosaur bones in the park.But they will need to have permits from the government.Pepole who are not scientists are not allowed to dig up bones or walk through certain areas of the park.This keeps tourist from stepping or damaging the bones. In 1979The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) tries to protect and preserve these sites for the future. Visitors can take tours of the park and see bones  on display at the visitor center. In addition, the Royal Tyrrell Museum in nearby Drumheller displays nearly forty full-size dinosaur skeletons. Skeletons and Individual Bones from the park are also on display in museums throughout the world. For more information check out http://whc.unesco.org/en/list
