Answer the following questions:

  1. Why shouldn’t you clone an extinct animal if there isn’t enough diversity in the group?
  2.Why is it wrong to clone an extinct animal if it would have to live in a zoo?
  3.Why can’t you clone the DNA of animals that have been extinct longer than 10,000 years?
Keys:

  1. Why shouldn’t you clone an extinct animal if there isn’t enough diversity in the group? There will not be enough genetic variation in the group to be able to resist new illnesses.

  2. Why is it wrong to clone an extinct animal if it would have to live in a zoo? It is not a good idea to clone an animal that would have to live in a zoo because it is not a suitable habitat to develop and increase its numbers. The zoo is not a natural environment for a wild animal.

  3. Why can’t you clone the DNA of animals that have been extinct longer than 10,000 years? The DNA of animals more than 10,000 years old is not suitable for cloning, for it can’t survive so long.

May the best animal win!
Which extinct animals are worth restoring by means of cloning? Choose one and use the information to help you argue why this animal should be restored to the earth.
Great Auk (18
  44)
Dodo bird (17
  55)
Auroch (16
  27)
Quagga (18
  83)
A sample dialogue (P
  16)
S1: I think the dodo bird should be returned to the earth. It hasn't been extinct very long. So its DNA will still be good enough for cloning. S2: Yes and sailors in the past always described the dodo as being a very friendly animal. So it would make a good pet. It wasn't too large either.
I can't see any other extinct animals becoming a pet, can you? S1: No, indeed. 1 know it's a bird like the Great Auk but neither of them could fly. So if you kept either, it wouldn't escape from a park, a family or its home in the wild. You could also farm a dodo, unlike all the others, and produce many of them as exotic pets.
S2: And what about its large nutritious eggs? Just one would feed a large family. So there's more than one reason for producing it in commercial numbers. S1: Did you know that its meat is very tasty too! Perhaps it could be farmed like ostriches and provide a good source of protein.
S2: The only problem is that it needs hot climate to survive. But that's easy to provide with all its other advantages. I don't think any of the other animals stands a chance against the dodo. S1: So we both agree that the best extinct animal to be cloned is the dodo bird. S2: Yes.

  3. A sample report(p.
  17)
The dodo is the most suitable animal to be cloned for several reasons. First, it became extinct fairly recently so its DNA is still in good condition. Second, it was always described as being a very friendly animal and it would make a good pet. Third, it cannot fly.
So it wouldn't escape from a park, a family or its home in the wild. You could farm a dodo and sell it as an exotic pet. Fourth, it produces large nutritious eggs which could feed a large family. Fifth, its meat is very tasty too!
Perhaps it could be farmed like ostriches and provide a good source of protein. Although it needs hot climate to survive, we feel that this can be easily provided. In return the dodo would provide a most useful source of pleasure and food.
