Hey guys, thought this would be an interesting video to check out!
In connection with the material we learned about Lazarus species in class, this experiment basically created a man-made version! Conservationists and scientists are working towards reviving a sub-species of zebra, called a quagga. These animals used to roam their native South African habitat freely, but were wiped out by colonial hunters in the 19th century. The final living quagga died in captivity at a zoo in 1883. The "Quagga Project" has been active for 30 years, selectively cross-breeding zebra with less stripes in an effort to repair the ecological damage done by the hunters. Looks like they finally did it!
