The irony here is we are trying to bring back a long ago extinct species while we allow countless others to disappear right before our eyes. I know, I know things have always gone extinct for one reason or another but it’s undeniable that our actions are causing this next mass die off of species.

The question isn’t if you can, the question should be if they should bring one back.

Why do this? So we can exterminate them again? How bout we just save the elephants we have left.
