More than three decades ago, 3 people with different courses of study and professional life, but inspired by their passion for paleontology. Recognizing the value of these fossils and the need to protect, prepare and study them, they constitute the Colombian foundation of Geobiology, to have an organization dedicated to recover, prepare, conserve, study and disseminate part of the pre-historical wealth of Colombia. With time important technical advances are achieved. From this moment comes national and international recognition by professionals and is when the initiative is taken to have a larger-scale headquarters to house the collection and the laboratory.
This is how we were born; being the first Paleontological Research Center of Colombia, it is located in Villa de Leyva, the place that has contributed most to the growth of the collection. The Center for Paleontological Research is a self-sustaining non-profit organization.
