The Alaska Paleo-Project works to raise public awareness of new discoveries like finding dinosaurs in Alaska, and hopes to ultimately produce an exhibit.
The latest project was to recreate the skull of an elasmosaur, which was discovered in Alaska. James and Andi Havens with Alaska Paleo-Project have been working on it for a year. James said they worked closely with Dr. Pat Druckenmiller from the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ the Museum of the North to make sure the representation was accurate. He added it took them about a year to reconstruct the skull and the neck of the elasmosaur. The overall goal is to produce an exhibit called the Alaska Paleo-Project.
The Havens have a summer camp for kids that Andi says she started last year. She said they get to work with multimedia, help sculpt dinosaurs and paint on canvas. She added that kids were involved with the creation of the elasmosaur as well.
