Spain, it seems people who make laws has confused things.
It seems they have put inside the same "bag"
Archeology and Paleontology, and, with the flag "Mankind
patrimony" they have make a law that forbids the
fossil's collect as it forbids to collect human remains
or city's remains of our ancestors.
It is not the same. It's not the same to collect a sea
urchim from the Cretaceous, of two centimetres size,
to whom almost everybody would kick, than collect a
Cromagnon man skull.
Paleontology is not Archeology. It musn't be forbiden,
because this is a contribution to culture that we, the
fossil's lovers, make disinterestedly.
deposits are another thing.
with this belief, we are going to try that this law,
if exists, would be rewrited correctly. For starting,
if anybody has that law text, please, send it to us
the fossil's lovers, are neither delinquents nor patrimony
despoilers. When you pick up a "stone" from
a peasant field , you make a favour to him, because
for the plough that "stone" is an obstacle
and probably it will break it down in thousand parts.
we don't like politics consider us as delinquents. Y
we don't like people or organisations who monopolize
land areas as if they were private enclosures.
a draft, we could push some basics of actuation, like:
As fossil's lovers, it is not allowed to sell fossils.
Only exchange is allowed. Our activity is not a commercial
. We have to have free access to all national land.
. Besides of growing up our private collections, some
of the collected pieces must be transfered to the museums
if they write down the owner's name.
. Any Archeology finding must be comunicated to the
. Que cuando se trate de vertebrados de gran tamaño,
precisamente por esa causa, deben comunicarse y cederse
a los museos.
. Museums must deliver an identity card to the collaborators
to allow them to make their activity freely, without
fear towards troubleds with polices.
. To promote an agreement among the different administrations,
so there is only an actuation basic: Total freedom to
collect fossils everywhere in the country.
. That we can collabor with higher level scientifics
when they ask it for, but only if they admit our property
over the left fossils, and they give them back to us
. And some points more that we can draw with the help
of your ideas.
At the end, the most of our collections will go to museums,
when the new generations see them as an hindrance instead
of a cultural reachness.
