Ep004 (Re)Born to be Wild with science communicator and author Britt Wray

In today's conversation, I speak with science educator Britt Wray. Britt grew up in Toronto and has lived around the world, and is now completing her PhD in Science Communication at the University of Copenhagen in the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication. Britt holds an honours bachelor of science in biology from Queen's University in Kingston and a master's in Art, Media and Design from OCAD University in Toronto.

Britt's first book, Rise of the Necrofauna: The Science, Ethics and Risks of De-Extinction was published in 2017 by Greystone Books in collaboration with the David Suzuki Foundation. Today we talk about her book and what de-extinction really is including the many myths surrounding de-extinction.
