Science: Sharon Levy: Conservation Lessons from Extinction
Until about 13,000 years ago, North America was home to a number of truly massive mammals. Then, just as the first humans reached the Americas, these Ice Age giants vanished. Science writer Sharon Levy, author of Once and Future Giants, digs through the evidence surrounding Pleistocene large-animal extinctions, showing that understanding this history-and our part in it-is crucial for protecting today's great creatures. The key to modern-day conservation, Levy suggests, might lie fossilized right under our feet.
