  • Help foster further interest in the field of paleontology around the world
  • Support and strengthen dinosaur research in the places we explore
  • Develop responsible and sustainable partnerships with leading paleontology-based partners and dinosaur experts.
  • Ensure all Dinosaur Trips experiences maintain the highest levels of safety for our guests, guides, and experts
  • Recognize and abide by all paleontology and scientific research methods, permits, and protocols across all operations and experiences


Since 1908, the Paleontological Society has been committed to the global advancement of invertebrate and vertebrate paleontology, micropaleontology, and paleobotany.

Their membership structure includes many different categories to encourage participation from paleontologists at all points in their lives and careers. Through annual meetings, conferences, grant funding, and journal publication, they promote a free exchange of ideas that ensures the continued relevance of the field.

Through accessibility and inclusivity, they continue to explore, publish, and create dialogue around new voices and ideas. As a Member, Dinosaur Trips joins the Society in encouraging everyone with a passion for paleontology to join.


Hosted by PhD student and paleontologist Adele Pentland, Pals in Palaeo explores the form, function, and family groupings of fossils from across geologic time.

Palaeontologist host Adele has named new species, worked with dinosaurs, discovered new dig sites and “watched Jurassic Park 347 times.”

She is obsessed with everything to do with fossils, prehistoric animals and palaeobotany. She’s also a pop culture nerd, and can quote The Simpsons in almost any situation.

Dinosaur Trips is proud to sponsor Pals in Palaeo: A Palaeontology Podcast and looks forward to continuing to partner with the podcast
