Description

Despite having become extinct in the wild 5 years earlier, the last quagga in the world died in a zoo in Amsterdam 135 years ago and of all the animals to have become extinct over the past 500 million years, the Quagga is the first to have had its DNA analyzed. Come and hear how a group of dedicated people are trying to “Right this Wrong and Rebreed the Quagga,” when March Turnbull will be the guest speaker. “The quagga March says, can’t have become ‘extinct’ if it never was a separate species, so it should be possible to rebreed it.”
