Britt Wray: Rise of the Necrofauna

Thursday, March 29, 2018 - 10:00am

There are now a number of scientists who think it might be possible to resurrect extinct species. Through a variety of genetic techniques, there are people working on bringing back the extinct Wooly Mammoth, the Auroch, and maybe even the Passenger Pigeon. But what are the ethics about bringing back to life a species that has died out? Just because we can, does that necessarily mean we should? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with science writer and radio broadcaster BRITT WRAY about her new book: RISE OF THE NECROFAUNA: THE SCIENCE, ETHICS, AND RISKS OF DE-EVOLUTION.
