What are the technical challenges and ethical considerations of re-creating and genetically tinkering with different species? What is the impact of introducing megafauna into different environments? Once dinos are loose, what rights do they have to survive? Does life really find a way? Our team of scientists include paleontologist Stuart Sumida (technical consultant, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Camp Cretaceous), herpetologist Earyn McGee (“Find That Lizard”), conservation biologist Sam Wynns, evolutionary development biologist Claire Meaders, paleontologist Gabe Santos, and geneticist and sci-fi author J.
