Rescue Them, Protect Them, and Gently Try To Educate My Fellow Wizards About Them: Rehabilitation, Conservation and Welfare in Fantastic Beasts

In Fantastic Beasts, rescuing a trafficked Thunderbird launches an introverted zoologist and his case of endangered Graphorns into a complex wizarding world war. Newt Scamander is fictional, but the movies deal with real animal issues: rescuing from poor conditions, rehabilitating the injured, and ensuring they aren’t lost forever. Join Melissa Aaron, bestiary scholar, and Jason Crean, magizoologist, as they discuss the textbook, the films, and the science of welfare and genetically diverse populations.
