About the talk - With a history unique in science and modern culture, the Coelacanth ("see-la-kanth"), was around millions of years before the Dinosaurs, and it was thought to have gone extinct with them until a freshly caught one was discovered in South Africa in 1938. It took 14 years for the second to be caught, cementing the place of this species in the annals of history and the public's imagination. Later discoveries have continued to excite new generations of "coelacanth-o-philes". Three people have died in their search for the Coelacanth, possibly many more.
