A spate of recent acts of vandalism on sites both here in the USA and around the world has shocked those interested in preserving our natural heritage. Most recently, Europe's largest nest of dinosaur eggs was destroyed in Coll de Nargo in the Catalonia region of Spain.
The Catalan Institute of Paleontology discovered the completely destroyed egg nest this week. Eggshells were found ripped up and scattered around the nest site. Salvador Moya, director of the institute, called the act "totally unacceptable" and noted that our paleontological heritage should be protected with as much fervor as our archeological heritage.
