This portion of Nova Scotia’s Fundy coastline is known by many paleontologists around the world for the richness of its fossils. These fossils are largely the remnants of plants that existed here during the Carboniferous era hundreds of millions of years ago when the world was covered in tropical forests and swamps. The fossilized bones of small bird sized dinosaurs have been located near the town of Joggins. These fossils are easily found in the shoreline cliffs.
