Dr Anthony Fiorillo has spent more than two decades searching remote areas in Alaska for evidence of dinosaurs that once roamed the state. He discovered a new species of tyrannosaur here. He has also described recent findings in a remote Alaska park as ‘hitting the jackpot’. Find out more about his work and what ancient ecosystems can teach us about our future on the next Talk of Alaska.
