National Geographic Live presents “How to Clone a Mammoth”

February 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$25 – $55

National Geographic Live presents “How to Clone a Mammoth” at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Newmark Theatre, 1111 S.W. Broadway, Portland. Tickets are $25 to $55, available at portland5.com/newmark-theatre/events/national-geographic-live-how-clone-mammoth.

Could extinct species, like mammoths and passenger pigeons, be brought back to life? Evolutionary biologist Beth Shapiro is one of the scientists investigating this intriguing possibility. From deciding which species should be restored to anticipating how revived populations might be overseen in the wild, the technical challenges and ethical considerations of de-extinction are substantial. Join Shapiro for a vivid exploration into the extraordinary cutting-edge—and controversial—science that is being used today to resurrect the past. This talk is part of the National Geographic Live 2022/23 Portland Speaker Series.

National Geographic Live brings to life the remarkable stories of National Geographic explorers through in-person live events featuring photographers, scientists, filmmakers and adventurers. For more information, visit natgeolive.com.
