‘Jurassic World’ North County Connection

Encinitas CA— The new movie ‘Jurassic World’ has a link to San Diego’s North County and the San Diego Botanic Gardens. Last month a film crew from LA rented out part of the Palm Canyon area at San Diego Botanic Garden to shoot part of this You Tube Video sponsored by GE.

In the video, GE host Sally Le Page explores the science behind genetically modified cloning that is part of the new movie, Jurassic World. If you look closely, you’ll recognize all of the beautiful plants in Palm Canyon behind Sally and cloned ‘Evil Sally. Inspired by the cloned dinosaurs in the “Jurassic Park” reboot, “Jurassic World,” Sally Le Page explores the science behind genetically modified cloning to see if it could one day be used in our lives. She travels to Bozeman, Montana where she meets with famed paleontologist Dr. Jack Horner, who’s attempting this very thing. Horner is trying to resurrect dinosaurs by genetically modifying birds. Sally also meets with other experts in the field, like Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye to talk about the consequences and possibilities of cloning and genetic modification.
