Revive & Restore scientists shine in new CBC episode on gene editing

By May 20, 2024May 29th, 2024No Comments
Revive & Restore lead scientist Ben Novak and Advanced Coral Toolkit awardee Line Bay present new perspectives on gene editing in wildlife, on the latest episode of The Current. The Current is a Canadian current affairs radio program which airs weekday mornings on CBC Radio One.

From the Episode

Human activity has drastically changed the natural world. We’ve destroyed ecosystems, hunted some species to extinction, and climate change has impacted almost every part of nature. Now, some scientists are asking a big question: should we change the animals themselves in order to save them?

Intended Consequences

For the thousands of animals and plants at risk today, inaction all too often leads to extinction. However, when conservationists propose interventions, they often hear, “What about the unintended consequences?” Revive & Restore’s “Intended Consequences” perspective reconsiders how we think about risk when considering conservation action. The concept of Intended Consequences provides a deliberate counterweight, encouraging us to keep an eye on the benefits for biodiversity, and work toward a future we want, not a future we fear.
