Dinosaur Day History

Dinosaur Day seeks to celebrate Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were a group of reptiles belonging to the ancestral family Dinosauria. They roamed the earth hundreds of millions of years ago. It is estimated that they went extinct 66 million years ago. This day aims to educate and inform people about dinosaurs and their descendants. It encourages everyone to learn more about dinosaurs. This day also serves as a fundraise for children with disabilities.

Dinosaur Day seems to have started in 2010 as a fundraiser for families with disabled children. It is observed twice annually, once on the third Tuesday of May and again on 1 June.
