Woolly Mammoths will be brought back from extinction within the next 4 years.

A Dallas based company called Colossal says they'll have their tech ready by 2027 for mammoth reintroduction

I would post an article but they all kind of suck

    Literally just genetically engineer a modern elephant to be more hairy and have smaller ears, woolly mammoth’s difference from modern elephants is greatly exaggerated, they really were not that different in average size from African elephants, a bit like later Neanderthal were not very different from Sapiens of the same time period, it’s likely had they survived due to natural selection they would have been almost indistinguishable and simply assimilated into modern populations

    >mammoth reintroduction
    Mammoths are cool and all but why not focus on species that are currently on the verge of extinction or ones that have recently gone extinct. Could mammoths even thrive in this day and age?

      Think of it like this: If we could bring mammoths back, how much easier will it be to ressurrect modern species? The air and water aren't getting any cleaner, we need to start "banking" important species to bring back once we get our shit together and clean up.

        They could probably be re-introduced into Siberia or the Russian north. But if it's possible to create lab grown beef, would lab grown ivory be possible?

      Go to the gulags and you can find out:

      Back in the soviet era there were multiple instances of 'workers' in Siberian forced-labor camps excavating mammoth corpses. Being that the corpses were so well preserved, and that food was so hard to come by, the workers consumed them.

    Consider that you need to get elephant eggs to insert with mammoth dna and then implant that back in a lady elephant and then wait 2 years for the egg to gestate and hope the fetus is even viable.

      Seriously speaking what we will get if we get anything is probably a mammoth-elephant hybrid. Possibly a scam to get funds from dumb investors who have lots of money and little scientific knowledge like those pods shit presented as future of transport. Basically kickstarter scammers for rich people.

      Dinosaurs are just birds, and chickens usually produce less methane than cows. Just kill the cows and bring back cool dinosaurs

      I'm an environmentalist but there's a time when cool simply overrules whatever is good for the ecosystem and at resurrecting dinosaurs we've passed that limit by a wide margin. In other words, just frick my world up.

        Dna degrades pretty fast. Dinosaurs are orders of magnitude too old to recover anything recognizable. If a dino genetic code were a library the best we could find are broken words.

          They tried to reverse breed it and do some manipulation to get it to produce a more primitive chicken. I don't think we got to see it as an adult though.
