Photographer's Note

During the visit to the natural science museum in Migasha a kid touching the sea! Not a perfectly taken, but a nice way to ilustrate the fun that adults and kids share at this nice Natual Park and Museum.

The Miguasha is a national park and many interesting activities are organised to explain its importance and richness in marine fossils. The park is one of Canada's 13th Unesco world heritage sites. According to the Unesco's description no other fossil site does a better job in illustrating the Devonian period (342 to 395 million years ago). In this region was found a great qantity of fossils from this period and the most preserved fossil of lob-finned fishe that gave rise to the first four-legged, air-breathing, terrestrail vertebrates - the tetrapodes.

As WS a picture of this famous fossil as well as a picture on the beach from were the fossils are taken to study. The rain just started when we steped out of the museum with the museum biologist to have a look at the scavation site...
