Overview

If we could…should we?

Earth is experiencing the sixth great extinction, this one created largely by us. Fortunately, human beings now have the tools to potentially undo some of the damage we have caused. New technologies could preserve vanishing species and habitats and even bring back extinct species like the passenger pigeon, the woolly mammoth and our beloved Tassie tiger.

However, the case for de-extinction is complicated. Do we try everything we can or are resources better spent addressing the escalating human impact on our current wildlife and saving what we’ve got? Join our panel of experts for a robust conversation exploring the possibilities of de-extinction science and the compelling question – just because we can, should we?
