Our team prepared the material which we have collected in the Rybal’skyi quarry. The shellfish and coral fossils (Mandrikivka layers) joined the collection of natural-geographical faculty of Melitopol State Pedagogical University named after Bohdan Khmelnytsky. This material can serve as an object of researches that could be conducted writing term papers and dissertations. Our team hopes that material from the Mandrikivka layers will be useful in the educational process of students. The contest «The Quarry Life Award» gives an opportunity for the teaching staff and students from many parts of our country to learn about the tourism potential of the Rybal’skyi quarry and a lot about the history of our planet.
