Newfoundland fossil trove wins bid to become UNESCO World Heritage Site
Mistaken Point, so-named for its frequent disorienting fog, is home to the oldest-known evidence of early multicellular life.

A rocky stretch of coastline along the southeastern tip of Newfoundland that holds secrets about the origins of complex life has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Mistaken Point, so-named for its frequent disorienting fog, is home to the oldest-known evidence of early multicellular life — a 565-million-year-old sea floor that’s been slowly exposed by the pounding Atlantic surf.

International experts visited the ecological reserve last fall as part of province’s bid to establish a UNESCO site on the island’s east coast.

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee made its final decision at a meeting in Istanbul, Turkey on Sunday.

This will be Newfoundland and Labrador’s fourth World Heritage Site of 18 in Canada.

Others include Gros Morne National Park, the L'Anse Aux Meadows National Historic Site and the Red Bay Basque Whaling Station.
