Arctic woolly mammoth hybrids could survive within six years as part of a pioneering genetic engineering project trying to reverse extinction.

The extraordinary scheme, led by renowned Harvard geneticist George Church, and backed by an initial $15 million from investors including tech entrepreneur Ben Lam, aims to bring several extinct species back to life to restore lost ecosystems and slow climate change.

“Never before has humanity been able to harness the power of this technology to rebuild ecosystems, heal the Earth and preserve its future by repatriating extinct animals,” said Lamm, CEO of Colossal, a new biosciences and genetics company he co-founded with Church.
