In the article, “Clones to the Rescue?” scientists may have discovered a way to save endangered animals. This can be done through the use of cloning. Very recently scientists were able to clone a black ferret, Elizabeth, from a black ferret that had died more than thirty years ago from her preserved cells. Black ferrets are an endangered species with fewer than 500 black ferrets out in the wild, and for the first time, scientists have been able to clone an endangered species. Thanks to this cloning, scientists could save even more endangered species in years to come. Scientists even have hope of possibly bringing back animals that are already extinct.
What are your thoughts on cloning animals?
