Joggins Fossil Cliffs featured on CBC Land and Sea

For over 150 years, scientists from around the world have traveled to the shores of the Bay of Fundy to study the world-famous fossil cliffs at Joggins, Nova Scotia. In the summer of 2008, the cliffs were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Joggins fossil cliffs have given scientists volumes of evidence of life on earth 315 million years ago. We meet two young scientists, including Brian Hebert of Fundy Treasures, who are taking on the role of protecting and studying the cliffs. Meet the new guardians of the Joggins fossil cliffs on the Land and Sea episode below.  Running time 22:07.
