The dinosaur fossils are found on Treaty 8 territory and we honour and acknowledge all of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples who have lived, travelled, and gathered on these lands for thousands of years.

The Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. We would like to thank the museum staff, volunteers, and visitors who provided support and feedback, the families who looked at preliminary versions of the content, and our colleagues at the Pacific Museum of Earth. Special thanks to Kevin Lyseng at WD Ferris Elementary school in Richmond, British Columbia and his 2021 and 2022 classes for participating in our user-testing programs.

This project was made possible by the Digital Museums Canada investment program. Digital Museums Canada is administered by the Canadian Museum of History with the financial support of the Government of Canada.

Additional funding from the Canadian Geological Foundation.
