De-extinction: Resurrecting Species That Have Died

I added de-extinction to the emerging future visual back in 2016 and described the scenario via this post. I came across this article recently that speaks to scientist attempts to bring woolly mammals back from extinction. The article states that “mammoth DNA, collected from tusks, bones and other preserved body parts found in ice, will be sequenced to create an “elephant-mammoth hybrid” that looks like a furrier, larger elephant with smaller ears and a high-domed head.”

There is also an interesting connection to climate change. The short video provides a description of the process.
