When Rowan University paleontologist Dr. Kenneth Lacovara finished his 16-minute TED talk in Vancouver this February, the audience erupted with applause. He even received a standing ovation. It’s not surprising that TED curator Chris Anderson included the paleontologist’s talk in the top ten TED talks of 2016.

Lacovara spoke about finding the mammoth dinosaur Dreadnoughtus and the improbability of human evolution as he stood on that infamous red dot.

The renowned paleontologist led the creation of the university’s fossil park in Mantua, recently renamed the Jean and Ric Edelman Fossil Park. Today, he leads a team of current and former students as they explore the grounds in search of fossils.
