Why so they too can be hunted again to extinction???? Ridiculous. We need to be focusing on conservation and protection for our current animals...focus on ways to stop the poaching of our wildlife instead!!!

And then what? It was humans who made them go extinct, and it will be humans again who will make them go extinct - again. IF they can really bring them back...
So how about saving the species we still HAVE, instead of letting them go extinct and bringing them back 20 years later (after messing around with their DNA)?! They should put all the money into conservation programs for endagered species!

Bringing older,extinct, animals back might mean having to reproduce the environment in which they lived., so that they can sustain themselves. Bringing back Mammoths, in this new age of warming, might be more cruel than anything else. Dodos, Moas, and the like might be much more feasible.

Noted. I understand the adventure in science. But I think it's time to regroup and get our priorities straight on what to spend our money on and what to set our heart on. Now, if they'd like to help figure out how to keep our current endangered animals from becoming extinct, THAT would be worthy of an honour!

Gloria picchetti - that is just priceless on so many levels! The Republicans would likely identify with the dinosaurs, they have so much in common. Could we get useless Republicans (I know, a tautology) to go into Republican wars with them to keep them company?

Guess the scientists have nothing else to do these days! There aren't enough health issues to solve like an end to Aids or cancers.....they have to waste money and time doing something very stupid that won't benefit mankind whatsoever. If the dodo was meant to survive, it would still be here....that is what is called the cycle of life...things live and die off otherwise we'd be fighting dinosaurs instead of terrorists.

Really? Smells to me like they're just trying to get people to sign on to their genetic God-playing. What good to bring back safely extinct species, into a world where existing species are being rubbed out left, right and center - or brutally exploited for financial gains.
No, R.I.P. tragic victims of human greed, arrogance and stupidity.

If scientists can't yet ressurect an extinct frog species then we won't be seeing a live woolley mammoth anytime soon. I agree that the priority should be to use resources to protect and improve conditions for existing endangered species.
