the title of this video is kinda misleading. I thought it was going to talk about how we can maintain zoos and other such places when we've granted person status to certain animals. Instead, it seems to talk about diversity in the genetic manipulation of the next generation and the benefits of it. Sense humans are actually the lest genetically diverse of any species on the planet, this might actually be a good thing, especially if its aimed at eliminated diseases and disorders. Still the title made me think of something like these (http://www.sivatherium.narod.ru/library/Dixon_3/pics/p0038.jpg) (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Oa1JSq79rPM/TUpTMLF491I/AAAAAAAAAcg/0tfAziDKrMI/s1600/5222484149_55eb97d6b9_z.jpg) (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_rh9Kcpw2c1w/TIXf2LnKAkI/AAAAAAAAASY/rnlftx_owS0/s1600/ManAfterManA.jpg) (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_rh9Kcpw2c1w/TIXeUYUtRdI/AAAAAAAAASQ/zYd8QxspQZk/s1600/ManAfterManC.jpg) .
