In conjunction with The Extinction Room, Prof Peter KL Ng, Director of the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, has in recent years become deeply involved in environmental and conservation biology. In the field of biodiversity science, the killing and preservation of animal specimens for research is an integral part of the discipline. If a biologist’s desire is to conserve – how should this need to kill be rationalized? In a wide ranging talk, these seemingly conflicting aspects will be discussed and hopefully parsimonised.
