Wow, there's a milestone for species preservation! I can't really think of any particular species, be it extinct or damn close to it, that deserves
the First In Line honor above the others, the fact that we're pretty close to being able to do it & thus fix what we broke in terms of biodiversity
is what should speak for itself. If we can at least bring back species we had direct responsibility for destroying, it's a step in the right
direction for bringing balance back. We can't just splice or clone & call it done, though, we need to work on habitat rehabbing & preservation, too.
Kind of all for naught when the habitats are crap or don't exist.
In the future, when (and I doubt this is an If thing) we get to the point of having large numbers of animals once extinct brought back, I think it's
going to be a sign that we're on the right track as a species ourselves as far as righting our wrongs & respecting the planet goes.

The animal's life would be horrendous, consisting entirely of being drugged, caged, poked, prodded and photographed. Why would anyone create life
just to torture it?
Well hey, ask a Christian exactly this about their god's crap antics towards humans & you get bashed hard for the mere thought.
That is not to say what's good for a god is good for a human (not the argument) Just an interesting mirror to consider because this is a good segue
for that kind of pondering.
