The university of Georgia has woken up to this challenge and come up with Top frozen zoo to save endangered species, as it is a major cause of concern for zoologist and humanity in general that thanks to change in climate and global warming a lot of animals are becoming extinct and do not exist anymore. It is high time that we wake up to this threat as already we have lost various species and time, and it is a must that we pull up our socks to save the world.
What is a Top Frozen Zoo?
The University of Georgia has a renowned Regenerative Bioscience centre that is in the quest of building a frozen zoo. This frozen zoo is said as storage centers where scientists will freeze genetics of animals that they think and consider are under threat. Really, thanks to the global warming and change in climate that helps to save these animals that may soon become extinct. The whole idea of this Top frozen zoo is to try and protect these species from extinction that they otherwise would go through.
The whole concept of the Top frozen zoo is designed by RBC Director Steven Stice and Franklin West.
How do we make a Top frozen zoo to save endangered species?
First a list of animals will be prepared whom they think to face a threat of going extinct. Then they will sedate the animals and take their skin cells through a procedure that will not hurt or harm the animal. Once these skin cells are extracted, they will make these cells into stem cells by exposing them to a series of tests and programs. Once the stem cells are made into sperms or eggs, they are ready to be stored to save endangered species.
A lot of care is taken to save these eggs and sperms in nitrogen gas induced chambers under special supervision and condition so that they are preserved and are not damaged in any manner. If they are well preserved, then they can be stored for a long period like 20 to 30 years. Under special conditions, you can also store them for as long as 200 years if you want to.
The concept of the Top frozen zoo to save endangered species is indeed a noble and great option that will help us to safeguard our nature and preserve the species that might soon face the fate of dinosaurs in the frozen zoo.
