Does anyone know if this technology could be applied to the Carolina Parakeet? our native eastern American parrot only became extinct about a hundred years ago and there are preserved specimens in many collections around the world but I wonder if the preserving techniques would destroy usable DNA. The idea that parrots could once again fly in our skies is amazing to me and a bit of an obsession.
