Karie is the Fossil Preparator at the Duke Lemur Center’s Division of Fossil Primates. She carefully uncovers fossils from the rock they are encased in, makes them sturdier, and puts broken pieces back together. She can also make realistic copies of fossils for museum display. In this live demo, Karie will share the methods used by fossil preparators to get fossils of extinct animals ready for study. Dr. Matt Borths will also be on the scene to help guide the video while Karie works on fossils!
