Palaeo in the Wild: How Palaeontologists Go To The Bathroom
Just about everything a palaeontologist brings into the field also has to leave with them. The grey bins at the bottom are used not only to haul fossils out of sites like the Burgess Shale but also human waste. This makes it VERY important to label your bins.
This washroom tent will be used this summer by our invertebrate palaeontology team as they search for new fossils describing the diversity of the world’s earliest life in Kootenay National Park, British Columbia.
