This visually stunning online exhibition explores the history and science of the Burgess Shale. Of particular interest is the comprehensive fossil gallery and an animated tour of the Cambrian seas that once occupied what is now Yoho National Park. A must-see for anyone interested in seeing what life on earth may have been like more than half a billion years ago, and an excellent primer for those who wish to visit the Burgess Shale in person.
The Virtual Museum of Canada's Burgess Shale exhibit was created by Parks Canada and the Royal Ontario Museum.
