Project turns to Te Urewera for dinosaur bones

A search for dinosaur bones is getting under in the Urewera ranges, and they're looking for the big one. Remains of carnivorous dinosaurs have been found in the area in the past 50 years, some related to the mighty T- Rex.

Now a collaboration between GNS and Tuhoe means that the area will be searched more extensively than ever before.

Paleontologist James Crampton joined Mark Sainsbury, filling in for Paul Henry, from Wellington.
