Could the dodo be revived? Scientists announce project to bring back extinct flightless bird

Scientists hoping to bring extinct species back to life have set their sights on reviving the dodo.

The flightless bird, native to Mauritius, infamously went extinct in the 1600s due to a combination of hunting by sailors and the destruction of its habitats by invasive species brought across to the Indian Ocean island by their ships.
