"There is a lot of serendipity in science. You can't find answers if you aren't asking the questions."

Lucy Cooke, a zoologist and broadcaster, has been challenging popular misconceptions about the animal kingdom for years. Her work is characterized by a combination deep scientific insights with a humorous approach, which makes her a favorite among audiences. Known for debunking myths about sloths and other creatures, Cooke emphasizes that many of our ideas about the natural world are anthropomorphic projections.

With biodiversity and conservation becoming central themes in recent times, Cooke's work brings a fresh perspective on how we view and relate to the animal kingdom. Her participation at HowTheLightGetsIn is expected to bring both levity and depth to discussions on nature and wildlife conservation.
