“Resurrection” (April 12, 2014)
Today we are celebrating Easter a week early. A Science Story presents a trifecta of stories revolving around resurrection, animals who returned long after we thought they were gone forever.
Andrew talks to researchers Haley Lambert and Professor Mark Elgar from the University of Melbourne about the demise (and incredible return) of the Lord Howe Island stick insect. We also discuss de-extinction: can and should we clone species back into existence? (Hint: It’s already been done).
