Maybe scientists should bring  back the extinct species of  parent and humans  ....that used to inhabit the earth .............remeber the ones the parents that never  shouted at their kids  games ......or  showed off their houses  with bathroom towels they don t use....or dinner  tanle already set but never  used .....or  fifteen pillows on the bed.........or using kids  as a show of wealth ...........or houses with dinner parties  they  want to show.........or  maybe  mums and dads   not using their  kids  as a  show of  success  ....or having parents that  control their kids  .......remember thos  days.......when mums  were  mums   and  never  needed to go to work or get in debt becasue they were  happy...........or scientists can nring  back the people with respect know   no stupidity ........

Scientists say they can bring extinct species back. But should they?

Scientists Are Trying To ‘De-Extinct’ This Species

What’s happening

A group of scientists last week announced a plan to resurrect the Tasmanian tiger, a coyote-like marsupial that has been extinct for nearly a century, using state-of-the-art gene editing technology.

The goal, researchers say, is to eventually reintroduce the creature back into the Australian wilderness, where it roamed as an apex predator before being hunted into extinction in the early 20th century. To achieve this, scientists plan to splice genetic material from old Tasmanian tigers with the DNA of its closest living relative — a mouse-sized marsupial called a dunnat — to create a new animal nearly identical to its long-dead ancestor.

The project is a collaboration between Australian researchers and a U.S.-based company called Colossal Biosciences. Last year, Colossal unveiled a bold plan to bring back the woolly mammoth. As difficult as reviving the Tasmanian tiger might be, the mammoth presents even larger challenges. Mammoths have been extinct for 4,000 years, meaning there is even less genetic material available to work with. The people behind the project concede that — if their work is successful — it will result in a creature that isn’t exactly a mammoth as it once existed, but really a “cold-resistant elephant with all of the core biological traits of the Woolly Mammoth.”

These efforts are part of an emerging scientific movement called “de-extinction.” Separate projects have been launched in hopes of bringing back extinct species like the Christmas Island rat, the passenger pigeon and even possibly the dodo. Similar work is being done to help animals currently at risk of extinction. In 2020, scientists successfully cloned a black-footed ferret, a severely threatened species that would likely disappear without new members being added to wild populations.

As significant as the question of whether these animals can be brought back — and a lot of experts have their doubts — there is a lot of debate over whether they should be.
