Maybe we can, but should we? Deciding whether to bring back extinct species

Maybe we can, but should we? Deciding whether to bring back extinct species

De-extinction – the science of reviving species that have been lost – has moved from the realm of science-fiction to something that is now nearly feasible.\n\n<br></br><br></br>\n<u><i>Dinosaurs, Extinctions and Excitement (Text 4) -- </u>This text is part of a Knowledge Set exploring the causes and effects of extinctions and their impact on the evolution of species on Earth. In this article, the authors describe how new technology has allowed scientists to bring back species that have gone extinct and provide a process to debate whether or not de-extinction is a worthwhile undertaking. As students read, they should assess the implications of de-extinction.</i>\n<br><br>\n<a href="https://files.a
