My argument against it is simply that it is a waste of money, time and effort when we have more pressing conservation problems.

In theory, the money could be recouped by zoos taking out licences to have mammoths. Kind of like how China requires zoos to purchace licences to have pandas.

Yes, but on the other hand: making a mammoth would require putting an asian elephant through a 22-month pregnancy without any way of knowing for sure if the fetus will be viable enough to survive birth, as opposed to being stillborn or having some other problem that threatens the life of the mother, too.
