PhD Jade Atkins appointed new Director/Curator of the Joggins Fossil Institute

Jade Atkins has joined the amazing team at the Joggins Fossil Centre as its new Director/Curator. The Joggins Fossil Cliffs is a UNESCO World Heritage Site along the coast of Nova Scotia that has been described as the "coal age Galápagos" due to their wealth of fossils from the Carboniferous period (354 to 290 million years ago). The rocks of this site are considered to be iconic for this period of the history of Earth and are the world's thickest and most comprehensive record of the Pennsylvanian strata. At Joggins, Jade hopes to continue to study the evolution and development of amphibians, as well as broaden her research horizons in new directions.
