I'm worried more if scientists are planning to release extincted animals into enviroments sooner or later because 1) That's introducing exotic species that could wipe out the native ones 2) It could heavily impact the food chain/enviroment habitats already existing, and 3) how would the "resurrected" animal survive? How will it adapt? I mean, it's a whole new world for them, and al ot can change in just one century, and they're not ready for that kind of change in a blink of an eye. Do you get what I'm saying?

i for one think this is great! perhaps one day we will be able to reverse all or most of the damage we have done to this planet. its are fault that the Thylacine went extinct. so why not fix are mistakes if we can?

If they went extinct in the first place then that proves that they cannot survive in the altered environment that man has created... So why bring them back just to let them die out again? Move on people! Leave the dead where they belong... (Shoo I sound like a zombie killer or something )

But some DNA stuff will free man to live a more productive life on our travels thru time and space,It may well be that we destroy our world and selfs someday but at least it will be known that we were great explorers of all that we find. Its just mans way of dealing with our little actually know universe. IMO DONTEATUS

You know...this kind of stuff is amazing, but I wish they would spend the time and money focusing on a cure for cancer or AIDS. There is a reason dinosaurs are extinct. I think it would be disastrous to bring them back or "cross-breed" them.

I like zOrigins reply... I think it'd be pretty cool and maybe we could cure some disease or something with the different species immunities..just a thought, but it could be tragic if mistakes are made and the technology is used for military purposes.
