Scientists recently launched a new website that allows anyone with internet access (and good vision) the opportunity to search for the fossilized remains of ancient animals and humans from the Turkana Basin in Kenya. The website has a million high-resolution photographs of the area. After you are trained on how to identify fossils, you are then shown photos and asked to mark anything that looks like it could be a fossil fragment.
