The Geological Survey of India (GSI) currently maintains two protected areas bearing rich fossil deposits.

Both parks, as well as numerous fossil displays and models in Indian zoological parks, are part of the Geological Survey's charter program to educate the general public on the Earth's evolutionary history. One of the more comprehensive displays is that of the Natural History Museum of the Nehru Zoological Park, Hyderabad.

The GSI also manages the National Fossil Wood Park in Tamil Nadu.
