[en] The Hoboken mammoth is a Belgian patrimonal piece of natural history that was mostly ignored since its discovery in 1865. The citizen-science program of the Flemish government was deemed ideal to study the skeleton and provide a new reconstruction, find out its geological and individual age and get an insight into its state of preservation. Such a paleobiological study is crucial for a better understanding of the evolution of the Hoboken landscape and the Flemish Valley during the last 30.000 years. By actively involving citizen scientists (mostly volunteers, amateur paleontologists and schools) into the different steps of this multi-disciplinary investigation, the participants can obtain a thorough insight into the fundamental values of the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). The ultimate goal is to set-up a permanent exhibit in Hoboken with the reconstruction of the complete skeleton combined with the results of additional research on this unique Belgian mammoth. Unfortunately the project was not funded in the 2018 application round, but the authors continue searching for alternative funding.
