I had thought the last dodo corpse was burned by accident and only a foot remained...

I think it is our responsibility to make right what we did wrong and clone this and any other animal that we have cause the extinction of.

Uh, I think they went extinct because they laid their eggs on the ground unprotected where anything could eat them. Sure, I'm sure humans had a hand in their extinction, but it's not like it was entirely our fault. Darwin's theory at work here.
