She speaks with Nikita Zimov, who together with his eclectic father Sergey, is creating Siberia's Pleistocene Park--a daring attempt to rebuild the mammoth's ancient ecosystem in order to save earth from climate disaster. Through interviews with these and other thought leaders, Wray reveals the many incredible opportunities for research and conservation made possible by this emerging new field."--"@en ;
