CBES Forums

The CBES Forums for June consisted of two separate events. The first speaker was Amy Fletcher, an Associate Professor of Political Science and Public Policy from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.  Dr. Fletcher’s topic was titled Engaging Extinction:  De-Extinction, Sustainability and Society.  De-extinction is a new and controversial approach to sustainability that foresees using advanced biotechnologies to reverse the biodiversity crisis and perhaps even to resurrect extinct species.
