The major emphasis for reclaiming extinct species should be those who were either hunted to extinction by humans or caused to go extinct due to habitat loss. So Wooly Mammoth obviously is the major prize, but the Thylacine, Irish Elk, Dodo's, Spooner Pigeons, etc.
De-extinction work by Ben Novak is likely to bring back the Spooner Pigeon in the next 5 years, it's a small start but as the ability to manipulate DNA becomes easier it will undoubtedly see the return of some species, then it's a question of environmental protections put in place for them.

I have a genuine question. Say you taught an Africa Gray Parrot basic words like "food, hello, hungry, angry, scared, danger, help, mate" and other words that would fit a wild parrot's basic life and habits, with them representing the context for humans. They will associate that word with the object of feeling it's trying to convey and use it, right? So if you introduce an adult parrot that knows all these words into a group of wild parrots, could others end up possibly using those words and essentially develop language?
>>
>>3209043
I have same question. Can parrots communicate with each other using human language.

cat owners are mentally ill and thus incapable of storing their food like a normal person.

otherwise they wouldn't have any issues with native rodents, you literally only get them if you live in a pile of shit predating ww2 or sprinke your food around like your carpet consist out of ants.

Get fucked

Hey all. I recently got a conure as a gift and have no idea what to do. It is 7 months old now and bites like I have murdered someone he loves.

I chill in the living room with it and try to feed it treats whenever I interact with it, soft voice, I leave music or Bob Ross on when I leave the house and got him a bird heater for his cage.

Is there any way to tame a bird quickly? If not, how long did it take? Do they always attach to just one person?

Pls help
>>
>>3208995
Don't interact with them, let them interact with you. let them make the first move. They probably think you're being aggressive. Basically treat them like c*ts.

I've been hooked on Missing 411 cases lately (mysterious disappearances where people seem to quite literally vanish in national parks and public land) and it got me wondering about sasquatch/bigfoot.

I've never been a big believer into cryptozoology but the thought of a giant undiscovered ape in the forest always makes me brainstorm over the possibility of its existence. Let's assume that such a creature existed and, despite its size, is a master of hide-and-seek and/or tries its best to kill witnesses. Since we never find any droppings, that must also mean that it buries it. We also never find any remains, which implies that they bury their dead and probably have a close-knit community and sense of belonging. With all these traits combined, we're probably dealing with an animal with a strong sense of self-awareness and very high intelligence which brings me to my main question:

If you placed this group of highly-experienced HUMAN trackers/hunters/foragers and told them to commit themselves to hide and thrive in a massive forest and gave them say a decade's head-start before going in and looking for them, would it be possible to find them at all using every piece of equipment available?

I just find it so hard to believe in sasquatch but thousands of people are convinced of its existence. Could it really just be a bear standing on its two back legs every single time?

No new large mammals have been discovered in North America in the past 185 years. I think it's safe to assume Sasquatch are a myth.

I don't want a bird the size of a fucking plane swooping me up any time soon.
