    Abstract

    Palaeontological resources are used by many people for diverse purposes, and in generating a best practice model for utilisation and conservation of these sites, the requirementsof all of these interested parties should be taken into account. Fossil bearing sites vary tremendously, especially in rates of destruction of the rock and fossils, frequency of visits by interested parties and the size and distribution of fossils therein. We argue that it is these criteria that should dictate best practice for any particular site, and in doing so a far more productive and balanced approached would be achieved.
