Daniel Fisher, director of the Museum of Paleontology at the University of Michigan, is a leading expert on mammoths and mastodons, and he is a member of our Museum’s Snowmastodon science team. Many of you may remember Fisher from the NOVA program about Snowmass and recall that much of his work is driven by an interest in whether human hunting was a significant factor in the extinction of these Ice Age icons. Fisher will share some of the highlights of his work, including Lyuba the baby mammoth, featured in the Mammoths and Mastodons exhibition. Lyuba’s amazing state of preservation—including eyelashes, ears, and internal organs—is providing scientists with a better picture of how these ancient giants lived.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
