And I don't think a duck's going to give birth to a plant. For some reason I think this would be limited to bird/reptiles, etc.
It has nothing to do with entertainment, it has everything to do with scientific progress. First, having actual, physical specimens of long-extinct species would help us learn more about the world as it was thousands of years ago. The biological techniques we master in the process of bringing these creatures back could be applied to other areas of science. And bringing back species we caused to go extinct could save ecosystems that we might have otherwise permanently screwed up. Don't be so short-sighted.
