Back from extinction: Resurrecting the Tasmanian tiger | Aljazeera

Must Read

The last thylacine is said to have passed away in the 1930s after being hunted and wiped off. Meet the researchers who hope to revive it.

Afternoon in October, Andrew Pask races across the gothic sandstone arches of Melbourne University’s famed quadrangle. The 48-year-old professor in the bioscience division is promising to lead a group of researchers in accomplishing something that no one has ever done before—bringing an extinct species back to life. The announcement that Australian paleontologist Mike Archer had successfully isolated DNA from a preserved thylacine specimen and would breed a Tassie tiger within 10 years made headlines across the world. If we concentrate on this endeavor to recreate an animal, we’re going to tell people that extinction isn’t permanent and we can correct things afterward, according to Moonley, who thinks that genuine conservation is about averting extinctions. He believes that this effort is a severe deterrent to actual wildlife conservation.
