The Missing Lynx: The Past and Future of Britain’s Lost Mammals – Ross Barnett
Sat, 5 October 6:00pm
Britain’s lynx have been missing for more than 1,000 years. Only 15,000 years ago Britain was home to lions, lynx, bears, wolves, bison but as the climate changed and human populations expanded most of the British megafauna disappeared. Will we ever be able to bring these mammals back? And if it’s possible, should we? Palaeontologist Ross Barnett uses case studies, new fossil discoveries, biomolecular evidence and more to paint a fascinating picture of these lost species.
