The African Centre for Coastal Palaeoscience is making its voice heard within the scientific community. Over the past few years, the Centre has made several groundbreaking discoveries.

Since 2007 the Centre’s research team has been documenting track sites all over south Africa and in that time they have come across amazing findings: giraffe trackways south of the Orange river significantly increasing the geographical range or this species, the first documented examples of fossilized sea turtle trackways, and the oldest avian track (dated to about 400 000 years) reported from southern Africa – just to highlight a few.
