The management plan for Dinosaur Provincial Park is currently under development.
Much of Dinosaur Provincial Park is designated as Natural Preserve. To protect the rich fossil resource and for the safety of visitors, access is limited to guided tours only.
We have a close palaeontology research relationship with the Royal Tyrrell Museum. We also work with other government agencies, educational institutions, research foundations and individual researchers to support research.
All research and collection activity that occurs in Dinosaur Provincial Park requires a permit. The permit must be obtained prior to the start of any research or collection project.
