In July employees from GeoCenter Møn travels to Greenland to excavate two dinosaurs.
The center expects to open an exhibition in June 2013, with the remnants of a Plateosaurer who lived in Greenland some 220 million of years ago in the Triassic period.
Plateosaurus was one of the first dinosaurs on earth and 8 to 10 meters long.
20 years old discoveries
The skelletons was found back in 1991, but first now with the help of a number of foundations there is created a economic opportunity for the project who is estimated to cost approximately 7 to 8 million danish crowns.
After preservation it is planned that one of the two dinosaurs should return to the Greenland National Museum in Nuuk.
