The Koobi Fora Research Project (KFRP) is a cornerstone program of the Turkana Basin Institute in Turkana, Kenya. The paleontology project includes both field work and scientific research to better understand how the Koobi Fora area around Lake Turkana holds clues to the evolution of human beings. The KFRP has unearthed more than 10,000 hominid fossils. "Turkana Boy," above, is the most complete early human skeleton ever found. It was discovered on the western shore of the lake, while the Koobi Fora rock formation is on the east.
