Gill discusses permafrost caves, harrowing medical experience on 207

University of Maine paleoecologist Jacquelyn Gill talked about her experiences exploring a permafrost cave in Siberia, as well as her medical scare there, with Rob Caldwell on News Center Maine’s 207. Gill was in Siberia in September 2018 to film “Lost Beasts of the Ice Age” for the Science Channel. She and other leading scientists saw woolly mammoth tusks and well-preserved remains of animals from another time. “When I was in that cave we were seeing entire cave lion cubs that looked like they might have died just a day or two ago,” she says. “They were 30,000 years old.”
