Why ‘De-Extinction’ Is Impossible (But Could Work Anyway)

quote [ Several projects are aiming to bring back mammoths and other species that have vanished from the planet. Whether that’s technically possible is beside the point. ]

Mammoth-elephant hybrids could be relocated to places such as Pleistocene Park, a large area of tundra in Russia where scientists are trying to restore the much more biodiverse and climate-friendly grasslands ecosystem it once was, when large grazers including mammoths populated the area. By trampling the soil and allowing cold air to seep in, the mammoth hybrids could in theory slow the melting of permafrost and the release of greenhouse gases that are warming the globe.

They've been talking about doing this for years now. This is one of the many Hail Maries that's supposed save us from the worst case scenario. Lol.
