Its mission to "to enhance biodiversity through the genetic rescue of endangered and extinct species", Revive & Restore announced on September 6, 2020, that
The world’s first successfully cloned endangered Przewalski’s horse was born on August 6, 2020.

This groundbreaking achievement was conceived as a new strategy to help restore genetic diversity to the Przewalski’s horse species.
