Karie Whitman | Duke Lemur Center: Fossil Preparation

Karie is the Fossil Preparator at the Duke Lemur Center’s Division of Fossil Primates. She carefully uncovers fossils from the rock they are encased in, makes them sturdier, and puts broken pieces back together. She can also make realistic copies of fossils for museum display. On her journey to becoming a Fossil Preparator, she also studied environmental science and conducted research in Madagascar – not on lemurs – but on rice agriculture! Karie will share the methods used by fossil preparators to get fossils of extinct animals ready for study and show how her work on Madagascar agriculture could help slow modern extinction.
