Have ever seen a Dodo bird? Neither have I. There are now dozens of birds that were seen by John James Audubon, when did his famous sketches, that are now extinct. For some it was nature, for most it was humans.

I am not, in principle, opposed to breeding practices or even genetic interference with species, or revival of extinct species. But to what purpose? I don't see much of any possibility that they could live natural lives in their natural habitats. So to keep them confined in zoos and preserves? Again, I ask to what purpose? Solely so that we gawk at them and reminisce about better times? They will never serve their function in nature as G*d intended.

Very sad article. It breaks my heart to think that future generations will not know of how these animals lived in freedom in the wild.
Thank you for posting Cher.

I think 100 years is optimistic. They have perhaps 25 years left in the wild. Stupid humans have to control and kill everything that they don't like, can't learn to live with other species. Human overpopulation will kill all the species eventually.
