We have time on our side, with technology progressing further everyday, and someday, we will find intact cells that those scientists need to resurrect extinct animals. The question of whether we should or not is much trickier. At first, it seems like the answer should be yes, because who would not want to see a wooly mammoth or a dodo bird?

Humans have indirectly, or even directly in some cases, made certain species of animals go extinct. I feel as if we as a race, have or even directly in some cases, made certain species of animals go extinct....
