Episode Summary

EDIT
Conservation Lessons from Ice Age Extinctions
AIRED:
Sharon Levy, author of emOnce and Future Giants: What Ice-Age Extinctions Tell Us about the Fate of Earth’s Largest Animals/em. (Oxford University Press, 2011) discusses what we can --and perhaps must--learn from extinctions in the remote past. Today, great beasts like elephants, lions and grizzly bears are threatened worldwide. New research on the demise of Ice Age giants like the mastodon and saber toothed cat now offers vital insights for modern conservation. Scientists have long debated whether prehistoric people drove large Ice Age animals to extinction. Delving into the private lives of these long-gone giants, researchers are finding strong parallels between their fate and the plight of modern wildlife.moreless
