Alberto Fernández-Arias, head of the Hunting, Fishing and Wetland department in Aragon, Spain worked with his team in 2003 to bring a bucardo (a species of wild goat) back from extinction using cloning methodology. It was the first successful de-extinction. Unfortunately, the cloned bucardo only survived 10 minutes and died of respiratory failure.  Fernández-Arias is committed to using current technology to ensure a more successful de-extinction.
