On this episode we will hear from Prof. Hildebrandt about:

His educational and career background. What the global system for “de-endangerment” looks like. How the world decides what species, of the many “highly endangered,” to focus on? The general concept of “Conservation by Cellular Technologies.” The topic of neoteny (the prolongation of youth) and learnings for humans that come from mega-fauna social animal groups. What’s next in his research after saving the Northern White Rhino. His feelings about “de-extinction” work with the likes of Mammoths, Saber Tooth Cats, et cetera.
