Burgess Shale was first discovered by Charles Doolittle Walcott. It is
now a UNESCO World Heritage Site tucked
away in the Rockies of Yoho National Park only about two hours from Calgary.
This magnificent site holds some of the world’s most unique fossils from the
Cambrian explosion preserving hard parts and soft tissue. These fossils provide
one of the best windows onto the origin of many modern animal groups and
ecology of the first complex marine communities. More than a century after the
first fossils were discovered, palaeontologists continue visiting these sites
and building up collections for a variety of studies.
