About the event
Through climate change, humans have now affected even the most remote environments and their inhabitants, and studies suggest that through our actions we are forcing some animals to evolve at breakneck speed to survive. Whilst some are thriving, others are close to dying out.
Dr Helen Pilcher considers the many ways that we've shaped the DNA of the animal kingdom and how we might use what we know to save species from the brink of extinction.
