As the parent of a 4 year old actively engaged in dinosaurs and paleontology led by Dinosaur Train and Dino Dana, this article is fairly well researched and very helpful but would benefit from additional research. My understanding is that employment opportunities in mining and drilling also exist as such businesses often accidentally uncover fossils and require assistance with preservation and removal. Also, like many human endeavors, Western countries lead in paleontology and fossil preservation so fossils discovered in less developed countries often are used to attract tourism or enhance prestige which often means government sponsored research led by Westerners that respect the local culture and speak the local language. If one develops basic movie production skills and is willing to present findings in a manner that flatters sponsors, acknowledges efforts of native talent and ties effort to Western achievements, one is opening future doors for additional opportunities. It would be nice if these additional areas were addressed.

I am actually earning a bachelor’s in Paleontology at Montana State University. I believe a school in North Dakota also offers paleontology as a bachelor.
