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 ......you know no stupidity ........

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 . 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 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 , the and even possibly . 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.
