Interesting article. The headline sounds like it wants to bring back extinct animals (which I personally don’t think is a great idea). However if you read to the bottom of the article one aim of this research is to introduce genetic diversity back into populations that are so closely related that it ‘poses a threat to their survival’. This is a really good idea as some populations are so inbred that their immune systems are compromised. and any help we can give them is a good thing!
