It's called "de-extinction," the act of bringing an extinct animal back to life by reassembling its genome and injecting it into embryonic cells. After that, it's the simple matter of finding a surrogate.

As a global minority, are white humans on the list?

A hard fact to face is....

It would be fun to have most of these back, although I have my doubts about the saber tooth tiger. And the dodo — they’d all vote democrat, and we have too much of that already.

I welcome bringing back the Dodo bird! I’ve heard they are delicious! That alone should ensure their survival if they are always raised on farms. You don’t ever hear of chickens, pigs, or cows going extinct.

Let’s all come together to “de-extinction,” the act of common sense. Common sense has died only to be replaced by victimhood. Please reject any substitions for common sense. Pay your bills too; BTW.

I’m for bringing most of the creatures back, as long as there is habitat where they can live without upsetting the ecosystem-Africa could likely accomodate smilodon and a bunch of the birds, the Tasmanian tiger could live where it originally did if it isn’t hunted, etc-but the Ice Age is over for now-where will they put the Mastodons and Mammoths-Siberia?

I’m okay with bringing back the mammoths and the Neanderthals too, but maybe in separate places...

Definitely in favor of bringing back the auroch (extinct giant cattle). They were about 6 feet at the shoulder. Think of how much meat was on those cows!

They aren’t able to clone the Neanderthals or Denisovians(sp?)-the DNA is too old and scarce. We’ve likely absorbed them as a race long ago anyway. Maybe the people in Siberia could become mammoth and mastodon herders? Got to be more fun than herding reindeer...

Yum-some ranchers here have those big, furry Galloway cattle-so the aurochs should fit right in...

I’m all for bringing back from extinction many of the founders. Shouldn’t be too difficult, instead of millions... to having to go back a mere 250 or so years.

In exchange for bringing them back, I’d put them to work as well. And pay them for it.

I’d house them in Washington D.C. mostly, but a good smattering of them elsewhere... could use a good handful here in Boston.

There’s some evidence that the Thylacine isn’t extinct.

And the Giant Beaver, well...

Ivory-billed woodpecker and Steller’s sea cow, for me.

And mammoth too.

No short-faced bears. No way.

I thought a quagga was a zebra-like thing, not a bird?

More cool ones: Moa, Haast’s eagle, megalania.

Have heard that some NZers think it is still around, but habitat so dense, is nearly imposible to find.

Giant Beaver ... I get it. Seen a few my self ...

You have a choice of white meat or dark meat.

It would be something to see a Haast’s eagle take down a moa.

I believe there are a couple of ivory-billed woodpeckers on some Caribbean islands.

I thought an Ibex was a type of antelope. Never heard of a Pyrenean Ibex horse. I am a horse breeder and well versed in history, breeds etc. I've never heard of this animal, whatever it is.

There are supposedly Ivory Bills in swamps in Ark. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some in quite a few Southern swamps. I live in Alabama and know for a fact there are critters here that “experts” say are not.

Thanks NoLibZone. The new ish of Nat Geog has this as the cover story.

Just adding to the catalog, not sending a general distribution.

The Passenger Pigeon or Wild Pigeon

:sigh:

People do realize why this bird was hunted in the first place, right?

"We were able to analyse auroch DNA from preserved bone material and create a rough map of its genome that should allow us to breed animals nearly identical to aurochs," said team leader Donato Matassino, head of the Consortium for Experimental Biotechnology in Benevento, in the southern Campania region.

Gigantopithecus, too. Except he’s still around under different names; Bigfoot, Sasquatch, etc.

The Tasmanian Tiger was a marsupial.

BTW - I live in an Agenda 21 "large predator" corridor. Do you want to relocate me so some on your list - the Smilodon, formerly local - won't run into me toting a .505 Gibbs?

marsupial, smarsupial you when all technical on me.

Hey we all gotta eat. Smilodon tastes like chicken after a good meal of mastadon ... Irish elk are lip-smacking good on the barbie. Like to relocate you, can’t. Sequester, you know.
