The Dinosaur Hunters are back. Thursday, June 30th you are invited to a presentation at 8:00 PM at the Viking Club, “The Ancient Life of Angola, a Closer Look”. Dr. Louis Jacobs, internationally recognized dinosaur expert who presented to the field group in 2009, will update us on the ‘extraordinarily spectacular’ results uncovered during the team’s last years of fieldwork in Angola. Also, Dr. Michael Polcyn, expert on the giant sea lizards, Mosasaurs, will discuss Angola’s marine reptiles. Both paleontologists teach at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, USA.

The presentation will kick off with a preview of footage of an upcoming film documenting the paleontological expedition which is known as Projecto PaleoAngola. Projecto PaleoAngola is a collaborative international scientific research program focused on exploring the ancient life of Angola but which also aims to work with Angola’s educational system at all levels to train students and create an interest in science. The rich paleontological finds and the tenacious scientists who uncovered them will be featured in an upcoming documentary written, directed, and produced by Kalunga Lima of LS films, based in Luanda Angola.
