Habitat over Cloning

There are a number of reports of efforts to clone endangered species as a
method to assist in their recovery. This approach treats the symptoms, not
the disease. In most every case the ultimate cause of endangerment is
habitat loss, and remaining habitat being insufficient to meet the needs of the
species. Conservation requires priority setting. Funds for costly reproduction
of animals that will have no home is not a wise investment. Biodiversity
conservation can only occur in the long term for most species through
establishment of regional protected area network.
