Researchers are looking at ways to use ancient DNA to resurrect long-extinct species. Species such as the Tasmanian tiger and the passenger pigeon may be good candidates for "de-extinction." In particular, scientists are exploring three possibilities: cloning, "reverse engineering" using the extinct species' closest living relative, and "breeding back" using strategic mating to bring back characteristics of the extinct animal.
