I'm not certain they will be happy, especially if we keep warming up.

Someone WILL do it - there are good zoos that exist to help species grow so can we not learn about them and care for the, as well?

Why? Will they be put into a preserve for canned hunts? Some Conrad's Kurtz will pay top dollar I'm sure.

By all means, yes! Granted, these critters would have to live in zoos, or preserves in Siberia or far northern Canada, but if we can resurrect mammoths, think of what we can learn about biology! Who knows? Maybe we'll be able to resurrect the passenger pigeon, they quagga, the thylacine, etc.

Sure why not, maybe they'll get the last laugh. While we are killing ourselves off, perhaps we'll bring them back to roam around as the last of us are fading away by eating our GMO foods, drinking our Fracked water, and still begging for the Universal Health Care we need.
