Join Dr. David Evans, a Curator of Vertebrate Palaeontology at the Royal Ontario Museum, to explore some of Canada's newest dinosaurs - including the amazing horned dinosaur Wendiceratops! Dr. Evans will reveal how Canada continues to play a major role in this new dinosaur revolution, contributing a surprisingly large number of new and spectacular species within the last few years. The rate of new discoveries in Canada is at its highest in almost a century - since the badlands were first explored.

Dr. David Evans, who leads dinosaur research at the Royal Ontario Museum, will also discuss the large number of newly discovered dinosaur species worldwide in the last two decades. He will delve into how these discoveries have enhanced our understanding of dinosaur diversity, the way they lived, and how they evolved.
