Joggins Town Fossil Cliffs Bay Of Fundy Nova Scotia

Towering to great heights, the fossil cliffs are extraordinary to explore while visiting the town of Joggins in the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia.

Along the coastal shores of Chignecto Bay in the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, Canada, large fossil cliffs are continuously changing due to the area having some of the highest tides throughout the world. As the cliffs get eaten away by the force of the water, new fossils emerge which are quickly examined by paleontologists.

Some of the fossils found in these cliffs date back to the "Coal Age" which took place about 310 million years ago. A fossil of the earliest known reptile, the Hylonomus lyelli, was discovered at these cliffs where some of the most notable geologists have come to explore. The fossil cliffs in the town of Joggins, Nova Scotia were placed on the World Heritage List in July of 2008.
