In this episode of Blue Sky Science, Stanley Temple, the Beers-Bascom Professor Emertius in Conservation in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology, answers the question, “Is it possible to bring back extinct animals?”

The Blue Sky Science video series was a collaboration of the Wisconsin State Journal and the Morgridge Institute for Research. They took questions posed by visitors to the Discovery Building and then set out to find an expert to answer the questions.
