      I don’t think I would bring any back… transplanting one animal from one ecosystem to another can often have disasterous consequences. Go and find out about rabbits and cane toads in Australia! Then imagine what would happen if we brought back Sabre-toothed Tigers? Look at all the 2 legged lunches for them!

      I don’t want any extinct animal to be back, as the extinct animals may not survive in the current climate. However, i do not want to see any living animals to be extinct. We should try to protect our environment.

      Dinosaurs! I would love to bring them back even though they wouldn’t be able to survive

      Have you seen Jurassic Park? Bringing extinct animals back to life has never been a good idea, unless you like being eaten by raptors… Instead, I’d rather invest time and money in organisations like WWF who work to preserve existing species. Humanity has wiped out 60% of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles since 1970 – that’s scary stuff!
