As you have been able to see the municipality of Coll de Nargó hides all one retahíla of surprises... and very pleasant by the way. The last one which it has arrived to me at the hands is the existence of rest of dinosaurios in I finish. And another very important thing: the existence of people behind who sacrifice their   hours of leisure to preserve and to spread this important historical legacy. It is the case of ADAU, Amics dels Dinosaures del Alt Urgell. (Friends of the Dinosaurios of the Alt Urgell). We are going to know them better, Come!
ADAU is an association that reunites to people to whom they like to walk by the mountain and to enjoy of their surroundings: the Romanesque one (very abundant in the municipality, as already we have shown), its towns and you hoist, his masías, the minerals and fossils, the fauna and flora in general... They are conservacionista people, that creates firmly that the respect to means and the progress can, and must, to go taken of the hand, and that our patrimony is a value that there is to conserve and to disclose. 
I suppose that you will ask yourselves as ADAU were born . You the story... From year 1985, a group of friends the president of ADAU, Josep Peralba began to investigate the rest of dinosaurios by the environs of Coll de Nargó (among them, of Coll de Nargó, and Joan Escuer, both geologists of profession... a

guarantee of the fidelity and veracity of the data that have been accumulating throughout these years. Little by little they were discovering new deposits (nests with eggs) in different states from conservation. To the being conscious of the magnitude and importance of the mentioned deposits (of most important of the country) they communicated immediately to the different administrations and institutions, recommending, obvious, its preservation and conservation. The lack of economic resources did not allow to go beyond the recovery of a pair of deposits that were being deteriorated seriously. Towards end of years 90, they detected that some of these deposits were being expoliados by people without no type of scruples, destroying them, and even, llevándoselos. 
Sensitized by these last facts they considered opportune to create ADAU, with the purpose of stopping these actions and beginning a period of protection, conservation and spreading of the mentioned deposits.
