The famous fossilized footprints at Laetoli in Tanzania,  are undergoing extensive presevation and excavation efforts. The footprints demonstrate that early hominids walked upright habitually 3.6 million years ago.

He said initial preparations by experts from various departments were already underway and actual excavation and preservation process would start soon after.

Acting Chief Conservator for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority (NCAA), Benard Murunya said the delay for the project implementation was due to the need for sophisticated expertise to avoid risk of damage due to windy weather at the locality.
