The Koobi Fora Research Project (KFRP) is an international collaboration of scholars focused on a broad range of questions regarding the emergence of hominids in East Africa.  Created in 1968, the KFRP has conducted over 35 years of fieldwork focused on the eastern and western shores of Lake Turkana in Kenya.  This research has generated a vast amount of paleontological, geological, and archaeological data including an enormous fossil collection.  In addition to a huge collection of fossil mammals, the KFRP has discovered and analyzed 350 hominid specimens dating between 7 and 1 million years ago.  This exceptional collection includes Homo habilis, Homo rudolfensis, Homo erectus, Paranthropus boisei, Paranthropus aethiopicus, Australopithecus anamensis, and Kenyanthropus platyops.
