520    From the Siberian permafrost to balmy California, 
       scientists across the globe are working to resurrect all 
       kinds of extinct animals, from ones that just left us to 
       those that have been gone for many thousands of years. 
       Their tools in this hunt are both fossils and cutting-edge
       genetic technologies. Some of these scientists are driven 
       by sheer curiosity; others view the lost species as a 
       powerful weapon in the fight to preserve rapidly changing 
       ecosystems. It seems certain that these animals will walk 
       the earth again, but what world will that give us? And is 
       any of this a good idea? Science journalist Torill 
       Kornfeldt travelled the world to meet the men and women 
       working to bring these animals back from the dead. Along 
       the way, she has seen the mammoth that has been frozen for
       20,000 years, and visited the places where these furry 
       giants will live again.
