Research at Copenhagen Zoo 4: On the release of animals, rewilding and invasive species
In this program on animal research at the Copenhagen Zoo, we hear about research that is a prerequisite for releasing animals into the wild. Bengt Holst talks about the golden lion tamarins in Brazil, about the wolf in Denmark, about rewilding and about invasive species in the wild.
Bengt Holst has worked at the Copenhagen Zoo since he graduated as a biologist in 1983. Since 1994 as Deputy Director and Scientific Director. From 1993-1999, Bengt Holst participated with Joachim Jerrik, Jens Degett and later Jerk Langer in a weekly radio program (Study 2000) on natural sciences on DR-P1.
The podcast is the fourth in a series of interviews (in Danish) with science journalist Jens Degett and Deputy Director Bengt Holst on zoo research and development.
