The Birdsong Fossil
Short Story
Multispecies Cities (World Weaver Press)

In the midst of the Earth's sixth mass extinction, hundreds of species are lost every year. As scientists scramble to preserve the DNA of vanishing species, bio-roboticist Yuzuki Alvarez is determined to preserve the rich and complex culture of animals. Pushing the boundaries of the possible, she races to recreate their minds - their souls - in robotic form. But as the maelstrom of the Anthropocene intensifies, time is running out.


"D.K. Mok’s funny, passionate “The Birdsong Fossil” dives deep into the concept of animal culture."
