Lonesome George, the last of a now extinct type of giant tortoise from the Galapagos Islands, could be cloned after scientists have preserved some of his cells by cryogenically freezing them.

he's dead! Not many choices,but I am seeing the writing on the wall
When our species have gone,and they will ,I regret to say...for example only 30 Amur leopards left.
they will be talking about cloning a lot I believe.
I just hope that does not give hunters and poachers encouragement to keep killing off our best animals.

They are not hurting him. This sweet guy already passed a while back. Researches just want to try to bring his species back using his DNA.
