W can't wait to go to the West Coast Fossil Park to see the newish buildings designed by Noero Architects. Jo Noero has kindly agreed to meet us there to tell us more on Fri 8 Jan 2021. Our host and guide is palaeontologist Pippa Haarhoff, the director who was key to the place opening in 1998. Surprisingly it is the only fossil park in South Africa. Unsurprisingly it is a National Heritage Site - five million year old animals, including short-neck giraffes and four-tusked elephants, are buried and fossilised here - it was a tropical paradise!
