Could moa really be brought back from extinction? This high-interest article considers the scientific and ethical issues related to the de-extinction of moa and other species. The ethical conundrums are explored using a “for” and “against” format, and further details are supplied in a humorous “how to” section. The final section puts forward several other contenders for de-extinction.
