In this decade some extinct species will begin to come back

Rapid advances in molecular biology are converging with new perspectives in conservation biology to create a new field called “de-extinction.”  Now is the time to begin public discussion of how de-extinction projects can best proceed responsibly.

On Friday, March 15, National Geographic is hosting the first-ever public exploration of the subject of reviving extinct species at TEDxDeExtinction, a daylong event at Grosvenor Auditorium in Washington, DC.
