Yeah Debates @ Jurassic Lounge - Is De-extinction wrong?

On the 27th of November, The Yeah Sessions took part in the final season of Jurassic Lounge, held at the Australian Museum. We held two 'speed debates', the first of which was on the topic "Anyone can be a photographer, but to be a filmmaker requires real skill". The second topic was as follows:

'Jurassic Park's Dr Ian Malcom was correct when he said “Dinosaurs had their shot, and nature selected them for extinction”. It’s wrong to bring back an extinct species.'

Have a peek a video below for the full debate:

Here's the speaker listing: 

- Paul Oscar
- Tim Dean
- Ari  Mattes

- Ketan Joshi
- Rebecca Johnston 
- Ryan Mitchell Wittingslow

We're working through our backlog at the moment, but stay tuned, we'll be uploading many more videos over the coming weeks, and organising more sessions!
