Bring Back the Dodo Bird?

14 Aug

Did you like the movie “Jurassic Park?” It wasn’t as good as the Michael Crichton book, that’s for sure. But both explored the idea of bringing back dinosaurs. The result of ‘playing God’ was a bloody disaster. Crichton’s made the point that maybe we should not really be toying with such things.trex

But back in the 1990’s, the idea was pure science fiction.  Apparently, not today.  Scientists around the globe are working to bring back extinct species. In some cases, albeit brief, they have succeeded!

This article from the National Geographic Magazine does an excellent job of painting both sides of the issue.  I enjoyed it. I see both points of view. I’m not sure what to think.  You?
