Instructions and Help about bringing animals into the us

Guys everything has its time in life as the old saying goes throughout the Earth's history species have come and species have gone for the first time though humans have reached a point now where they may be able to bring back some species from the grave some people argue this is a very bad idea others can't wait to see it happen by the way it seems like it's going to become a reality in the not-too-distant future my name is Danny Burke and this is the top 10 extinct animals being brought back to life let's start off a number 10 now with the dodo the dodo is one of the most famous extinct animals of all time responsible for coining the phrase as dead as a dodo the last of these birds was thought to have died out in 1662 they were only found on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean they lived in harmony with the ecosystem there and had no natural predators until humans arrived and killed them off for food scientists discussed the possibility of bringing back the dodo from extinction during a TEDx discussion in Washington DC in 2013 the Dodos closest living relative is the night Khobar pigeon and some say that one of his eggs could be fused with the cell of a dodo to create a living dodo imagine if that happened he would ruin that phrase next up number nine now we have the mammoths now this is perhaps the most famous extinct animal of all time Society has been obsessed with these woolly elephant cousins for decades interesting fact for you guys although most of them did die out about 10,000 years ago a small population of mammoths survived on Wrangell island off the coast of Russia until just 3,600 years ago that's nothing if you think about it humans were running around at the end of the Bronze Age during then anyway because of how recently they died out and how many of their bodies became frozen in the permafrost scientists have actually been able to extract cells from mammoth remains the plan is then to supply specific mammoth genes into the genome of an elephant embryo to create a sort of mammoth elephant hybrid with all the mammoth traits we recognize now this isn't just for no reason either some scientists say that these new mammoths could help prevent Tundra permafrost from melting and releasing huge amounts of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere moving on some of eight now we have the thylacine this species died out in the 1930s after being hunted to extinction in its native Australia it may like a dog but the thylacine actually belonged to the marsupial family and was a relative of kangaroos and koalas a group of Australian scientists led by Michael Archer have previously worked on bringing back the thylacine from extinction they call themselves the Lazarus project their efforts only managed to capture some
