Sam Waterston Introduces Paleontology Video

Sam Waterston (Law & Order) appears in the introduction of a video made for The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. The video is available for viewing on the web site for The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (link below). I watched some of it and the subject is actually very interesting.

According to the Society’s web site:

Founded in 1940, the society now has almost 2,200 members representing professionals, students, artists, preparators, and others interested in VP. The society is organized exclusively for educational and scientific purposes. The object of the society is to advance the science of vertebrate paleontology and to serve the common interests and facilitate the cooperation of all persons concerned with the history, evolution, comparative anatomy, and taxonomy of vertebrate animals, as well as field occurrence, collection, and study of fossil vertebrates and the stratigraphy of the beds in which they are found. The society is also concerned with the conservation and preservation of fossil sites.

You can read the official press release about the video here.

Cool. I have never heard of them but the video is actually pretty good. Sam is the best part though.
