There would be few more exciting sights than a living , but honestly, cloning them out of extinction wouldn't be conservation. It would be a self-indulgent freak-show.

Had a great time talking about as part of their exhibition. Thanks to all who came along, even if it raised more questions than it answered!

How is funded? a) scarcely at all, even relative to mainstream conservation & b) by donors who mightn’t otherwise fund conservation. Has been labelled an arrogant activity. Perhaps, but what of the human habit of actively causing extinction?

A viable hybrid northern-southern white rhino embryo is a meaningful step towards a hybrid, or even a near-pure northern white. A long, hard, way to go, but this *may* one day be seen as a milestone in -one with potential to help all rhinos

Very sad to hear of Sudan's passing, the last male Northern White Rhino on the planet. He leaves his daughter and granddaughter as the last 2 of the species, . I met Sudan in 2016 when researching for my book. Would love his /genetic rescue to succeed ❤️

Even if the technological hurdles are solved, the ethics of are challenging: forcing a surrogate mother of a different species to carry the embryo. For mammoths, that would be an Asian elephant, which means a cruel 22-month pregnancy.
