I saw this petition earlier this day. And I doubted. I'm so suspicious when I see that it is going trough a lot of scientists.
Well, it is only my personnel opinion but I think that humans don't deserve a second chance when species are extinct.
This species was been declared extinct.
Maybe we better let that so.
Can you imagine , 100- 150 years in a tank for scientific research ? And how many will die before there will be a healthy one ?
We have had in the Netherlands more of that DNA googling - bull Herman , sheep's - nobody knows how much died before Herman was a small success and the sheep's was a complete failure. I'm not religious but I don't like that googling with DNA for new species or bring extinct species alive.
I think they will do it in the first place for scientific purposes.
And for a Nobel price. “It would be the first time that a species was recovered after having been declared extinct,”
