The PaleoAngola Project is a scientific programme in collaboration between various international institutions in order to research and promote the Paleontology of Angola. The results of fieldwork in Cretaceous sites have been extraordinarily spectacular, with the discovery of the first dinosaur of Angola, dating from the Late Cretaceous, and mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, ammonites and fossil turtles. Besides the scientific objectives, we aim to create a strong and lasting institutional and scientific collaboration that has a multiplier effect in Angolan academia.
O Projecto PaleoAngola é um programa científico entre várias instituições internacionais com o objectivo de investigar e dar a conhecer a Paleontologia de Angola. Os resultados de missões nos terrenos do Cretácico foram surpreendentes, com a descoberta do primeiro dinossauro de Angola, datado do Cretácico Superior, além de vestígios de mosassauros, plesiossauros, amonites e tartarugas fósseis. Além dos objectivos científicos, é nosso intuito criar uma forte e duradoura colaboração científica e institucional que tenha efeitos multiplicadores no meio académico angolano.
Our friend and colleague, Kalunga Lima, passed away December 19, 2011. He was one of those rare human beings that was driven to
make this world a better place and had the talent, energy, and focus to make it happen. His passing is a tragic loss for his country, his
family and his friends. We will miss him very much.
Kalunga was filming a documentary of the PaleoAngola expeditions. The link below takes you to a short video, a trailer for the
documentary, posted on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7glJjrDIpI4
