A March 15 Ted Talk explored the topic of De-Extinction -- the science of bringing extinct species back to life.
Read on to see more species that have been shortlisted by research group Revive and Restore as possible candidates for such a process.
One of the species on the list is the Dodo, a flightless bird native to the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean that went extinct in the mid-17th century. A Dodo is seen here in display at the "Extinction: Not the End of the World?" exhibition at The Natural History Museum in London, Feb. 5, 2013.
