Jurassic Park meets Greenpeace!
How would you like to see mammoths in the wilds of Siberia? Or come across an aurochs on your morning jog?
Scientists across the globe are working to resurrect all kinds of dead species, from ones that just left us to those that have been gone for centuries. Their tools in this hunt are both fossils and cutting-edge genetic technologies.
Some of these scientists are driven by sheer curiosity. Others view the extinct species as a powerful weapon in the fight against climate change.
These animals will soon walk the earth again, but what world will that give us? Is it a good idea?
In researching this book, Torill Kornfeldt travelled the world to meet the women and men working to bring these animals back from the dead.
Along the way she has seen the mammoth that has been frozen for twenty thousand years, and visited the places where these furry giants will live again.
A fascinating book, in which the feasibility of these projects and the ethical aspects are also exposed.
