Cloning Endangered Species


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that:

Scientists have for the first time created a healthy clone of an endangered species, offering powerful evidence that cloning technology can play a role in preserving and even reconstituting threatened and endangered species.

The animal in question is a Javan banteng, but who knows where it will lead?

Let's just hope the politicians don't get control of this, or else we'll be stuck with clones of dinosaurs like Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd.
