Western Carolina University’s Forensic Osteology Research Station, founded in 2007, was the second body farm facility. In addition to serving as a laboratory for studying human decay at an altitude of 2,271 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the center has provided a training ground for cadaver dogs that can detect human remains. The third and largest forensic anthropology research facility opened in 2008 at Texas State University, San Marcos. Spread over 26 acres, the facility has yielded valuable data about human decomposition in the hot Texas Hill Country and produced research on the scavenging rates of vultures. A second facility in Texas is located at Sam Houston State University, renowned for its criminal justice program, in the southeastern area of the state. Additional body farms have been created in Illinois, Colorado, South Florida, and northern Michigan, providing the opportunity to compare how bodies decompose in many different environments, from sub-tropical swamplands to arid deserts to snow-covered plains.
this is wack why would someone give up their body?
How do I get a card to designate my body for the farm?
