Resurrection Science

by M.R. O’Connor

In a world dominated by human interference and rapid climate change, species large and small are increasingly vulnerable to extinction. In Resurrection Science, journalist M.R. O’Connor explores the extreme measures that scientists are taking to try and save them, from captive breeding and translocating genetically rare individuals to frozen zoos and de-extinction. Each chapter in this beautifully written book focuses on a unique species and the people entwined in its fate.
