The ROM’s collections include more than six million objects and specimens, whose embedded knowledge can challenge the understanding of our past and catalyze new ideas that transform our future. Your gift to help fund new acquisitions will expand research opportunities for established and emerging scholars, where the insights they uncover directly engage visitors through our exhibitions, galleries and education programs.
New Dinosaur Species
It’s not every day a new dinosaur species is discovered, and it’s even more exciting when it is named in honour of long-time ROM supporters, James and Louise Temerty. Dr. David Evans and a team of scientists unearthed Acheroraptor, the “raptor” like dinosaur in Montana, USA and the original fossils wouldn’t be on display today if it weren’t for support from donors just like you.
“We are proud to support ground breaking palaeontology research initiatives at the ROM, which provide fascinating insights into our history and the world we live in,” - James Temerty
