The animal kingdom is a glorious ecosystem that a lot of us take for granted. In some cases, humans have been so preoccupied with surviving and thriving that other species have fallen by the wayside, only to die out entirely. Luckily, scientists are constantly working to find the key to bringing back some of the world’s most incredible extinct animals.
With cutting edge research financed by universities, scientific grants and animal-loving private financiers, you might be delightfully surprised by just how possible un-extinction is. From woolly mammoths to Irish elks and more, some of these beautiful beings may be on the verge of a comeback. If you thought your only chance of seeing a saber-tooth tiger would be to turn over to the Discovery Channel, think again. It could just be a matter of time.
After all, science has evolved massively since some of these animals last walked the Earth, so it’s only natural that the dawn of a new age is almost upon us. In fact, some scientists have been working on this very subject for decades already.
