Dung beetle expert Sally-Ann Spence explores the little insects, revealing where you can find them, and why we should look after them.

Instant Genius is a bite-sized masterclass in podcast form. In this week's episode, we talk to Helen Pilcher, a biologist and science author.


She discusses whether we can bring back a species after it has gone extinct, and how the research could help us protect species under threat of extinction.
