17 animals scientists want to bring back from extinction | Second Chance with Saving Grace (SCwSG), Inc. | Scoop.it
It's called de-extinction, the act of bringing an extinct animal back to life by reassembling its genome and injecting it into embryonic cells. After that, it's the simple matter of finding a surrogate.

This will make animals that were extinct revive.

Buffer Do you know how savvy nonprofits use social media marketing to reach more people? On a wing and a prayer is not a strategy.  It means barely managing to get the job done.  Yet that’s how many nonprofits run their social media.

6 Amazing Ways Animals Show Compassion (audio interview Frans de Waal)

6 Amazing Ways Animals Show Compassion (audio interview  Frans de Waal) | Second Chance with Saving Grace (SCwSG), Inc. | Scoop.it

Renowned primatologist Frans de Waal argues that our own sense of morality can be traced back to our primate relatives.

If you're a Christian fundamentalist, you probably believe that morality comes directly from God (via a download of the Bible, to be sure). And if you're a law-and-order conservative, you likely think we need strict rules, and harsh punishments, to keep people in line and prevent their baser impulses from taking over.

 

But if you're a primatologist? In that case, your view of morality is radically different. You probably see indications of "moral" behaviors all throughout the animal kingdom, and especially among our primate relatives such as bonobos—who show high levels of empathy, have a female-dominated social structure, and use sex, rather than violence, to solve in-group social conflicts, and even when they encounter other, potentially hostile groups.
