No. Let nature take its course. Many people say that bringing back extinct animals would drastically improve the ecosystem. However, the habitats of many of the animals that people are trying to bring back have mostly been changed or destroyed. This means the animals may have to relocate, which would result in it being an invasive species, and we all know the unwelcome effects of invasive species. You would have to revive a natural predator and prey for that specific animal to prevent it from disrupting the fragile ecosystem.

Over time the Earth would fix all of the havoc and damage caused by people, and it would be an almost perfect haven, with a balanced ecosystem.
Animal activists may think that it would beneficial to the animals. However, you also have to think about the animal itself. Some of these creatures are intelligent enough to feel some emotions, like love and fear. Imagine being uprooted from your home into an entirely different place that’s both hotter and smaller than your original home. That’s what the animals will instinctively know, if not feel.
