Sounds like youre talking about "reverse extinction" which is a thing that some folks are promoting trying to do, and might be within our grasps to actually do nowadays.

Using DNA samples to clone recently extinct creatures like the thalycine (the marsupial equivalent of a tiger or a wolf) that roamed Tasmania until only a century ago, or the dodo bird, or the ivory billed woodpecker.

A real "Jurassic Park" is probably impossible.

But you might be able to turn a ranch in Canada, or in Siberia, into a real "Pleistocene Park" by stocking it with living animals from the Ice Age by cloning DNA taken from the frozen carcasses of woolly mammoths.

Raise a herd of living Mammoths! For fun and for tourist profit!
