Astounding innovations in bioengineering now allow us to manipulate and reproduce the genetic building blocks of living material. Horn Maker tells the story of Matthew Markus, a brilliant and eccentric entrepreneur who tries to use this technology to save the rhinoceros, being poached to extinction for its horn.
Travelling the world on his quest to market bioidentical horn, he learns hard truths about the resistance to radical technology, the personal cost of innovative thinking, and what it might take to fix the broken system of wildlife conservation.
