    About This Project

    The aim of the Moa Revival Project is to return all Moa species to New Zealand starting with the eastern Moa, Emeus crassus. The path to de-extinction starts with sequencing the genome of the extinct animal. The purpose of this project is to complete the sequencing of the Moa genome. As a standalone project this research will help to further clarify ratite evolution. In and of itself that is worth doing, however this is also the first step in an our mission to bring the Moa back life.
