Scientists Want To Bring Back The Woolly Mammoth.


Geneticists, led by Harvard Medical School's George Church, are trying to bring back the woolly mammoth from extinction... kind of.

The plan ins't to clone a mammoth. The plan DNA that scientists have extracted from woolly mammoth remains will be used to create, through genetic engineering, an elephant-mammoth hybrid.

They're saying that bringing back the mammoth in this altered elephant-mammoth form could help "restore the fragile Arctic tundra ecosystem, combat the climate crisis, and preserve the endangered Asian elephant."

And the efforts got a major boost this week with an investment of $15million. THIS MIGHT ACTUALLY HAPPEN.
