Extinction happens when an organism or species no longer exists. Gone forever! Kaput! What if we could reverse extinction? DE-EXTINCT these organisms.
What is de-extinction? You may call it resurrection biology or species revivalism.
1. Scientific knowledge
Offer insights into evolution & natural resources that are currently unavailable to us.
2. Technological advancement
Big step forward for genetic engineering.
3. Environmental benefits
Threatened or damaged ecosystems could be restored with the help of certain extinct species.
We owe it to these species to resurrect them if people are the cause of their extinction.
Cool to see extinct species brought to live.
1. Animal welfare
Exploiting animals solely for human purposes & may harm the de-extinct species.
Is de-extinction playing God, or just plain wrong? It may also have unforeseen consequences.
